In my original message, I mentioned that I tried that and it
eliminated the NameError, but then I get the issue where the main loop
is never run.  Which is similar to what is happening here:
http://trac.sagemath.org/sage_trac/ticket/1264 .  I wasn't able to
figure out what Fernando did the last time to get rid of the problem.
