scary muli_polynomial_ring warning

Thw following warning message looks pretty scary, since it is accompanied by a stack trace. And I have absolutely no idea (yet) as to what it is trying to tell me. Is the result it prints in the end reliable? If so, why the fuss? And if not, what is causing this problem? Is this an indication of a bug?

sage: R1.<cosAlpha, sinAlpha> = AA[]
sage: QR1 = R1.quotient(R1.ideal(cosAlpha^2 + sinAlpha^2 - 1))
sage: QR1(-8*sinAlpha - 4*sinAlpha*cosAlpha + 5*2*(2*sinAlpha*cosAlpha)*(cosAlpha*cosAlpha - sinAlpha*sinAlpha))
