EDIT: the limit superior of a sequence $(x_n)$ is defined as

$$\limsup x_n=\lim_{n\to\infty} \sup \{x_k:k\ge n\} =\inf\{\sup \{x_k:k\ge n\}: n\in \mathbb N \} $$

where the first definition is the more interesting computationally.

It seems that, computationally, evaluating the limit superior is hard because it is done via "brute force". Not only ths happen in sage, too in other CAS. It seems that there is a loooong run in the developing of computer algebra systems.
