Well the cause of the hang is the multiple species defined for one 
sequence. Is that valid? Desired? Should the fix be to somehow store and 
be able to output multiple species again, or to ignore all but one of 
the species? You have two sequences with this problem in the large file 
originally posted.

If this has 'worked' for you before it is probably because a completely 
meaningless composite species classification was generated. The new 
taxonomy system 'ensures' that the taxonomic data parsed is sane enough 
to be output correctly again.
