two different results for Sum[Log[n]/n...


I have Mathematica 4.0.1 (oldish I know). Could someone please explain the
behaviour below --- different outputs to same input just because of some
other input in between. If it's a bug, is it fixed in more recent version?
Thanks.

In[1]:= Sum[Log[n]/(n),{n,1,Infinity}]

Sum::div: Sum does not converge.

            Log[n]
Out[1]= Sum[------, {n, 1, Infinity}]
              n

In[2]:= Sum[Log[n]/(n^2),{n,1,Infinity}]

Out[2]= -Zeta'[2]

In[3]:= Sum[Log[n]/(n),{n,1,Infinity}]

Out[3]= -StieltjesGamma[1]
