I get series expansion as expected

It isn't obvious to me what you are suggesting here. If I enter

ArcCosh[x] + O[x]^12

into a new cell, I get that returned as I would expect

If I enter

Series[ArcCosh[x] + O[x]^12, {x, 0, 11}]

into a new cell I get the same result as for

Series[ArcCosh[x],{x, 0, 11}]

except there is now an additinonal O[x]^12 term in front of the
previous result. This seems reasonbable.

I am using a slightly different version

$Version 5.2 for Mac OS X (June 20, 2005)

but it isn't clear this is significant
