Very simple limit, why doesn't it evaluate?


It stunned me that the Mathematica 3.0 returns this very simple limit
unevaluated:
4^(n+3)/(3^(n+4)-5), with n -> infinity.

Moreover, the NLimit function returns 1.0756... which is a rather poor
approximation of infinity (the expected result)... Well I can understand
that NLimit is numerical and can't be relied on, but why does the original
Limit[] die on that? Or am I doing anything wrong?
