Initial Comment: expr: (x^(1/n)+1)^n/2^n; limit(expr,n,inf); Is x positive or negative? pos;Is x  1 positive or negative? pos; Error: Contiguous blocks exhausted. Currently, 129 pages are allocated. Use ALLOCATECONTIGUOUSPAGES to expand the space. Fast links are on: do (si::usefastlinks nil) for debugging Error signalled by MACSYMATOPLEVEL. Broken at HAIPART. Type :H for Help.  a) Of course it shouldn't cause this sort of error at all. b) What is allocatecontiguouspages??? There is apparently no such function in gcl. By the way, tlimit gets the correct result, sqrt(x).

It seems we're trying to compute 2^16384, and CMUCL stops if the exponent is too large. Presumably gcl is trying to compute the same thing and has run out of memory for this number.
