[BUG] limit of nthroot(x) != limit x^(1/n)
This is probably related to: http://www.hpmuseum.org/cgi-sys/cgiwrap/...ead=255313

If you calculate the limit n->infinity for x^(1/n) the CAS returns 1 (which is the expected answer)
But if you compute the limit n-> infinity of n-th root of x the CAS returns infinitieth-root(x) (this forum needs an equation editor!)

Have you tried using LaTeX syntax? For example:

$\lim_{n\to \infty} \sqrt[n]{x}$

Oh, that's cool. Didn't know that. Thanks! I'll use that in my next bug post which I will write right now ;-)
