(trigsimp produces this.) Then limit is correct. tlimit produces the correct limit.  You can respond by visiting: https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&atid=104933&aid=3534858&group_id=4933

I think that limit should always use trigsimp and all remaining simplify functions to maximize probability of getting correct value.
