Ok, thanks. I already know where the problem was.

The a() method was just an example.  The real problem was elsewhere.

I had two methods with the same name, one at Cotacoes (the ancestor),
another one at CruzaEmas.

The method called at the __init__ of the ancestor was the one of the
daughter class, and not the one of the ancestor's, as I was expecting.
After changing the name of the latter, everything seems to be fine.
