I have a problem with the following code (minimal example) in SageMath 8.7 notebook:

x, y = var('x,y', domain=RR)
solve(x == 0, x, y)

when executed, I get the following error:

    /opt/sagemath-8.7/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/sage/symbolic/relation.pyc in _solve_expression(f, x, explicit_solutions, multiplicities, to_poly_solve, solution_dict, algorithm, domain)
   1357     if to_check:
   1358         for ix, soln in reversed(list(enumerate(X))):
-> 1359             if soln.lhs().is_symbol():
   1360                 if any(a.contradicts(soln) for a in to_check):
   1361                     del X[ix]

AttributeError: 'list' object has no attribute 'lhs'


x, y = var('x,y')
solve(x == 0, x, y)


x, y = var('x,y', domain=RR)
solve(x == 0, x)

work as expected.

I am sorry if that question a already been posted, I don't know which keyword to use.

A bug, IMHO...
