As with every 'normal' bug report, could you please add BioPerl version,
OS, and perl version you are using?

May I also ask anyone who wishes to submit a bug report (regardless of
whether you're sure it's a bug) to use the bug-tracking system on the
web-site (http://www.bioperl.org/Bugs) instead of the bioperl mailing
list. When posted to the list bug reports get easily lost, and you can't
keep track of a status. The developers get notified about incoming bug
reports anyway, and if it's easy to fix and/or to solve you usually will
get a quick answer. The only problem with the web-interface is
attachments, but you could cc to bioperl-guts-l@bioperl.org if you have
attachments you want to make sure that they are left intact.

I will not be able to look at your problem before tonight, so if someone
else has got time ... :)
