I am using Mma 3.0 on a NextStep 3.3 PentiumPro Intel machine; I have also successfully reproduced the problem on a Sparc running Mma 3.0. The following command Limit[E^(2/y),y->0] returns the correct answer "infinity" when the Calculus`Limit` package IS NOT loaded. When the Limit package IS_loaded (which I had thought meant even more functionality), I incorrectly obtain "0" as the answer. Why is the Limit.m generating an incorrect answer? Is this a known bug? And if so, is there a list of known bugs that a user can access? Thanks.
