Limit bug in Calculus\Limit ???

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.
