MathKernel Crash while calculating limit

Hi everybody,

during a calculation of a limit, MathKernel crashed. I tried the  
following:

Limit[((-2^(n - 1)*M)/(n!*L^(n - 1)))^(n/2), n -> (infinity)]

After some seconds, Mathematica produced a beep, then I got a crash  
report concerning MathKernel. I attached a full crash log to this  
mail. Oh, and I'm using Mathematica (for Students) 5.2 on a PowerBook  
G4 running MacOS 10.4.9.
Also tried calculating that limit without the constants L and M, this  
time it worked.

Maybe somebody can explain that behaviour to me...

Thanks in advance,

ulrik
