consider the somewhat easier to interpret limit:

Limit[(1/n (-1)^(1/n)) / (1+1/n (-1)^(1/n)),{n->0}]

then Limit[(-1)^(1/n),n->0] has an absolute value of 1, provided we 

define the limiting process so that it converges. Therefore, the 

original limit should be considered as 1.

Therefore, I think this is a bug you should report to Wolfram.
