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
