### Defining functions error?

I've got some code I've been using to test stuff... and I know python/sage doesn't have explicit function ends (it is white-space determined) but I can't for the life of me figure out what is going on with this code:

#A dummy parallel function to count elements in a generator/iterator.
@parallel(6)
def dummy_look(grpit):
cntrdmy=0
looptre=True
while looptre:
try:
grpit.next()
cntrdmy+=1
except StopIteration:
looptre = False

return cntrdmy

#print 1

def myfirstn(n):
num = 0
while num<n:
yield num
num += 1
return

(any executable line)


When I leave "print 1" commented out, it raises an error on the 2nd definition.

When I uncomment "print 1" it excecutes just fine. (and correctly runs the parallel-ness, though that isn't demonstrated in this code)

I'm running this on cloud.sagemath.com
