Unless I've made a horrible mistake somewhere, it's possible to show this limit is 0 using just one application of L'Hopital's rule.

Of course, because you are not supposed to do it that way.

It's similar to computing the Taylor series of e^(-1/x^2) at x=0, students get confused when they get a polynomial that vanishes identically XD
