Problem with Solve and O[x]


It appears the Solve and O[x] don't mix.  Consider the following.

Mathematica 2.0 for NeXT
Copyright 1988-91 Wolfram Research, Inc.

In[1]:= Solve[x+z==1,x]

Out[1]= {{x -> 1 - z}}

In[2]:= Solve[x+z==1+O[z],x]

Out[2]= {{x -> 1}}	(* I would prefer x -> 1 + O[z] *)

In[3]:= Solve[x+z==1+O[z]^2,x]

Out[3]= {}		(* What is wrong with x -> 1 + z + O[z]^2 ??? *)
