Hi Sendu,

I think the package was not installed at all. The only thing I saw in 
the Bio folder is ANS1 which was another package(I mistakenly thought 
it's the only package installed by Bundle-BioPerl 2.1.16). I did not 
force install with CPAN. So is it possible that the three typos forbid 
bioperl be installed?
