# Plot "color_by_label" produces SQUARED number of lines in digraph

I bumped into this unusual behavior and am not sure how to fix it. When I add color_by_label for plotting a digraph I get the correct number SQUARED of lines appearing in the digraph. Is this an error in SageMath or is there a workaround? All monochrome lines do not work for my application.

This is my code sample:

stnc = 'ABCCCCDABCDABCDA'
g = DiGraph({}, loops=True, multiedges=True)
for a, b in [(stnc[i], stnc[i + 1]) for i in range(len(stnc) - 1)]:

sage: g.edges()
[('A', 'B', 'B'), ('A', 'B', 'B'), ('A', 'B', 'B'),
('B', 'C', 'C'), ('B', 'C', 'C'), ('B', 'C', 'C'),
('C', 'C', 'C'), ('C', 'C', 'C'), ('C', 'C', 'C'),
('C', 'D', 'D'), ('C', 'D', 'D'), ('C', 'D', 'D'),
('D', 'A', 'A'), ('D', 'A', 'A'), ('D', 'A', 'A')]

# This produces the correct number of lines SQUARED
g.plot(color_by_label=True, edge_style='solid', layout='circular').show(figsize=(8, 8))

# Correct number of lines but monochrome
g.plot(layout='circular').show(figsize=(8, 8))


Each edge should have multiplicity 3. In the plot with color edges, each has multiplicity 9. The plot with no colors has correct multiplicity 3 for each edge.

That is a bug. I think the faulty lines of code are

Fixing this is now tracked at

Edit. The ticket now has fix and positive review. Hopefully it will be part of the next Sage release.

If you installed Sage 9.2 or later from source or from binaries (rather than "via a package manager"), you can apply the fix to your current Sage installation by running the following commands in a terminal:

$cd$(sage -c "print(SAGE_ROOT)")
$git remote add trac git://trac.sagemath.org/sage.git -t develop$ git checkout -b 31542
$git pull trac u/chapoton/31542$ ./sage -b


Next time you start Sage, it should have the fix.

Thank you so much for the excellent feedback and quick response. Based on your instructions I created a SabeMath 9.2 install from the source in a Linux virtual machine and then applied the patch. Everything worked fine.
