# numerical_integral in piecewise function

If I define a Python function with a numerical integral

```
def g(x):
var('u')
return numerical_integral(u,0,x)[0]
```

then it behaves as expected for example when plotting with `plot(g)`

. If it is included as part of a piecewise function like

```
f = piecewise([[(-1,0),-x],[(0,1),g]])
plot(f)
```

then the plot shows up just fine for Sage 6.9 (which was running on sagecell.sagemath.org), but for Sage 7.2 (which is running on the test server) one gets the error message

```

Am I missing something simple or is this a bug in Sage 7.2?

There is an existing ticket that appears relevant: http://trac.sagemath.org/ticket/14801
