I've uninstalled the fink installation and used the cvs instead, and  
the error message is gone. However, on a larger set of 190 species,  
which are all present in the NCBI taxonomy, the resulting tree has  
only 178 taxa. I suspect, something must be wrong with the  
merge_lineage method in the major rewrite of the taxonomy2tree  
script. Can someone please check this? I'm attaching the 190 species  
call to the script. Thanks,
