Seqfans, 
       This is one of those identities that on the surface look deeper than they really are:  
V^(J^2)*x = Sum_{n>=1} (-n)^(n-1)/n!*x^n*[Sum_{k>=0} V^((n+k+J-1)^2)*n^k*x^k/k!].
  
If we form an array of coefficients
T(n,k) = V^((n+k+J-1)^2)*(-n)^(n-1)/n! * n^k/k!
and sum on antidiagonals, 
the terms cancel everywhere except the upper left corner, 
leaving the value V^(J^2). 
 
So, sorry for the false call! 
     Paul
