From number field to interval field

I would like to understand why the following works

sage: K1.<s1> = NumberField(x^3 - 2, 's1', embedding=RR(1.26))
sage: RIF(s1)

and the following does not

sage: K2.<s2> =NumberField(x^3 - 2, 's2', embedding=CC(-0.63,1.09))
sage: CIF(s2) 
Traceback (most recent call last)
TypeError: unable to coerce to a ComplexIntervalFieldElement

Thank you, Vincent

Looks like a bug to me. `CIF.coerce_map_from(K2)` shows that a sane conversion *should* happen, but then something goes wrong when actually coercing an element.

Ok. Thanks. I sent a message on sage-devel and sage-nt.

I do not know when it was fixed, but It seems to be fixed now:

sage: K2.<s2> =NumberField(x^3 - 2, 's2', embedding=CC(-0.63,1.09))
sage: CIF(s2)

I have been getting bugs from time to time as well. There are times when Sagemath can't even call out digits of pi for me. I have to close out the program, and browser that does fix the issues most of the time, but not all the time.
