It also appears in version 6.0.1.

In[1]:= Limit[1/x, x -> Infinity]

Out[1]= 0

In[2]:= Exp[Sqrt[x]] + O[x]^2

Out[2]= (SeriesData[$CellContext`x, 0, {
  1, 1, Rational[1, 2], Rational[1, 6]}, 0, 4, 2])

In[3]:= Sum[x^n/n!, {n, 0, Infinity}]

During evaluation of In[3]:= SeriesData::sdatn: Order specification \
___ in SeriesData[_,_,{},___] is not a machine-size integer. >>

Out[3]= \[ExponentialE]^x

In[4]:= $Version

Out[4]= "6.0 for Microsoft Windows (32-bit) (June 19, 2007)"
