Bug in O[x]


Have a look at this:

Mathematica 5.0 for Linux
Copyright 1988-2003 Wolfram Research, Inc.
 -- Motif graphics initialized --

In[1]:= (1+O[x])^2

Out[1]= 1 + O[x]

In[2]:= (1/x+O[x])^2

         -2       0
Out[2]= x   + O[x]

In[3]:= (1+O[x])^3

Out[3]= 1 + O[x]


Obviously something is wrong with the O function in Mathematica 5.
