Maxima returns this limit unevaluated, while it should
return 0.

Another example is limit(4^n/2^(2*n),n,inf);
Perhaps the same problem causes Maxima to return
limit((10^n+9^n+8^n)^(1/n),n,inf);
unevaluated (well, in a way), while it should return 10.

    Partially fixed in CVS. The 4^n/2^(2*n) case still returns
    infinity instead of 1.
    I'm going to close this bug and add a new one about this case.
