Attempting to enrich quiver class yields "unexpected keyword argument" error

I would like to do some computations with preprojective algebras, variations on the path algebra of a quiver in which every arrow has a partner going the other direction. I will want to construct representations of the "double quiver" in which I can conveniently compare the linear map associated to each arrow to that of its partner.

I figured I should create a class (something I haven't done in Python before) inheriting from DiGraph which has the extra data of a dictionary pairing the edges. My code to do this, with the constructor taking an arbitrary quiver and adding reversed copies of all the edges, is as follows:

class DoubleQuiver(sage.graphs.digraph.DiGraph):
def __init__(self, digraph):
    edges = []
    self._edgePairs = {}
    for e in digraph.edges():
        self._edgePairs[(e[0], e[1], e[2] + '0')] = (e[1], e[0], e[2] + '1')
        self._edgePairs[(e[1], e[0], e[2] + '1')] = (e[0], e[1], e[2] + '0')
        edges.append((e[0], e[1], e[2] + '0'))
        edges.append((e[1], e[0], e[2] + '1'))
    super(DoubleQuiver, self).__init__(edges, multiedges=True)

def flip(self, edge):
    assert edge in self.edges()
    return self._edgePairs[edge]

If I make a test digraph and run


it runs fine, and running methods like edges() or vertices() produces the results I expected. However, when I attempt to evaluate


I get an error:

Error in lines 1-1

How should I modify my class definition to avoid this error, or is there a better way of accomplishing what I'm trying to do? (Also, is it relevant that I'm trying this on CoCalc?)
