You are probably using a version of bioperl which does not have the
changes to NCBI's BLAST RID names.

If you grab the latest RemoteBlast.pm from CVS http://cvs.open-bio.org or
from the SRC tree http://www.bioperl.org/SRC/
So RemoteBlast.pm is here
just drop the latest file in your local distribution.
