  I get the following exception thrown up if I try to retrieve _any_ 
GenBank sequence:

------------- EXCEPTION  -------------
MSG: acc does not exist
STACK Bio::DB::WebDBSeqI::get_Seq_by_acc 
STACK toplevel test:47


  in response to something as trivial as:

  $gb = new Bio::DB::GenBank();
  $seq = $gb->get_Seq_by_acc('M29081');

I have no trouble with any of the other supported DBs (including 
RefSeq), but am consistently unable to retrieve anything using 

I've seen previous postings to this list
on a similar problem, but I'm quite sure the accession numbers I'm 
trying are bona fide. I've tried many different accession numbers and 
IDs without success.

Has anyone seen this type of problem before?
