Series is taking too long

There must be something wrong with Series.
It took about 3 seconds to evaluate the first example
below but it never evaluated the second example (I killed
it after 10 minutes). I duplicated the problem many times.
I was the only one using the machine (no background jobs either).

In[1]:= Series[D[(Pi^(1/2)*(-z^2)^(1/2)*Erf[(-z^2)^(1/2)])/(E^z^2*z),z],{z,0,7}]
Series[D[(Pi^(1/2)*(-z^2)^(1/2)*Erf[(-z^2)^(1/2)])/(E^z^2*z),z],{z,0,7}]

In[2]:= Series[D[(Pi^(1/2)*(-z^2)^(1/2)*Erf[(-z^2)^(1/2)])/(E^z^2*z),z],{z,0,9}]
Series[D[(Pi^(1/2)*(-z^2)^(1/2)*Erf[(-z^2)^(1/2)])/(E^z^2*z),z],{z,0,9}]


Thanks for any help.
