### Compute Groebner basis of real polynomials

I'm trying to compute the Groebner basis of an ideal of real polynomials by doing

sage: P.<a,a11,ca11,a12,ca12,b11,cb11,b12,cb12>=RR[];P
Multivariate Polynomial Ring in a, a11, ca11, a12, ca12, b11, cb11, b12, cb12 over Real Field with 53 bits of precision
sage: I = Ideal([-2*a*a11*ca11+2*a*a12*ca12+4*a*b11*cb11-a11*ca11+3*a12*ca12+b11*cb11-3*b12*cb12,3*a*a11*b11-a*a12*b12-ca11*b11+3*a12*b12,sqrt(3)*a*a11*b12-2*a*ca11*b11+sqrt(3)*a*ca12*b11-sqrt
....: (3)*ca11*b12-2*a12*cb12-sqrt(3)*ca12*b11,2*sqrt(3)*a*ca11*a12+2*a*b11^2+2*sqrt(3)*a11*a12-2*b12^2-1,2*a*ca11^2+2*sqrt(3)*a*b11*b12-2*a12^2+2*sqrt(3)*b11*b12])
sage: B = I.groebner_basis(); B


but the output is
