I was not able to trace the actual fix. But there was a thread in
december/january about that.
In one of the last messages Nathan was about the fix this:

Brian added a comment on this alphabet() issue.
Have you tried bioperl release 1.5.0 or bioperl-release-1-5-0-rc2 ?
Guess it should be fixed there.
Is bioperl-release-1-5-0-rc2 behaving better than 1.5.0 related to the
Bio::SeqFeatureI architecture ?
