I'm plotting some (possibly degenerate) conics via implicit_plot.

y = var('y')
implicit_plot((y*sqrt(sqrt(2) + 2) - x*sqrt(-sqrt(2) + 2))^2 == 0, (x,-2,2),(y,-2,2))

yields a blank plot for me. Yet this should be equivalent to

implicit_plot((y*sqrt(sqrt(2) + 2) - x*sqrt(-sqrt(2) + 2)) == 0, (x,-2,2),(y,-2,2))

which yields a line, as it should. On the other hand,

implicit_plot(x^2 == 0, (x,-2,2),(y,-2,2))

does give a vertical line. Why is this different? Is this a bug?

I'm running this on the cloud, using a free account on http://cocalc.com. Perhaps this has something to do with the problem?
