[Axiom-developer] Changing a variable type?

In experimenting with the Chor-Rivest knapsack cryptosystem, I have the problem of adding two polynomials: one is the defining polynomial of the field, and the other is a field element.

But the command


produces the error

 >> Error detected within library code:
   coerce: element doesn't belong to smaller field

which I don't understand.  What I need to do is to force u to be treated as an "ordinary" polynomial, rather than as a field element...
