Package: python-sympy
Version: 0.7.2-1
Severity: important
File: isympy

Dear Maintainer,

isympy does not run with python-gmpy2 installed on the system.  The traceback

Traceback (most recent call last):

AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'sqrtrem'

removing python-gmpy2 fixes the problem.
