In a recent message to this group ([mg33251] Animation), Juan Erfa posed 
a question which has not received any comment from this group. 
Essentially, the problem is

Product[(1 + 1/n)^2, {n, Infinity}]

Limit[Product[(1 + 1/n)^2, {n, k}], k -> Infinity]

The first output is wrong, while the second is right.

Any idea about this apparent bug?
