  when evaluating the command Series[ArcCot[x],{x,0,14}], mathematica
seems to use up unreasonably huge amounts of memory, for example on 
our ultrasparc i interrupted it when  ps -e -o
user,pid,pcpu,pmem,vsz,rss,s,stime,time,args showed
   gwesp  2071 26.2 76.2 150024 95320 S 16:53:30        1:22

the problem also exists on linux.
  taylor series computation is certainly not _that_ memory intensive, so
this behaviour is bound to be a bug imo.

  could somebody try this out on a windows95/nt machine and inform  me
of the results?

the version:
In[21]:= {$Version,$ReleaseNumber}

Out[21]= {Linux 3.0 (April 25, 1997), 1}

best regards and tia,
