getLastMatch returns None when importing Sikuli

Asked by HappyStainedToilet

I wanted to reuse code from another sikuli script, so I've followed your documentation about that:

And one of the prerequisites says that my imported script MUST include this for its first line:
from sikuli import *

However, when I import everything from Sikuli as requested, things didn't work as before. I've isolated the code and basically:

from Sikuli import *

wait(<some_pattern>, FOREVER)
print 'Debugging point:', getLastMatch()

That doesn't click anything, however, it finds the pattern but prints "Debugging point: None"

But the following two solutions work:

1. Work with the returned Match:

from Sikuli import *

click(wait(<some_pattern>, FOREVER))

2. Remove the importing line

wait(<some_pattern>, FOREVER)

Maybe more of a report than a question, but, is this the intended behavior? I was expecting the "getLastMatch()" to continue working as expected. Seems a little odd that stops working as before and no documentation explaining it..

Thank you in advance for this awesome tool!

ok, tested with 2.0.6: getLastMatch() returns None in any cases.

This is a bug.
