Okay, so the reason I added the (incorrect) Bio::SeqIO::swiss fix stemmed
back from the original problem, downloading using Bio::DB::GenPept,
outputting the data as swissprot.

Of course this is just the stream handler, data is downloaded
from ncbi as GenPept (which we handle with the GenBank format) 
and display_id() is filled in via SeqIO::genbank, which doesn't
add the _$div to the display_id.  One solution is to check in swissprot
before writing out the record that the display_id indeed follows the
locus_div format, if it doesn't then add the _$div to the display_id.
