[Bioperl-l] retrieval of PRELIMINARY uniprot sequences using Bio::Registry fails

sorry for the belated response!
I've compiled you a set of 100 PRELIMINARY entries from the latest
uniprot_trembl release. I've tried to reproduce the bug using only these
as input to build an index, but (sadly) all of them can be retrieved
using the latest checkout:-(
Maybe its not connected to these entries after all, but the size or some
other feature of the uniprot distribution?
I now could make it work using the 1.5.1 release.
Originally, I've built the index using flat protocol, when I try bdb and
bioperl-live even more problems occur:
bp_bioflat_index.pl --dbname sw -i bdb -f swiss -l . -c uniprot_sprot.dat
------------- EXCEPTION -------------
MSG: The lineage 'Eukaryota, Metazoa, Chordata, Craniata, Vertebrata,
Euteleostomi, Amphibia, Batrachia, Anura, Mesobatrachia, Pipoidea,
Pipidae, Xenopodinae, Xenopus, Silurana, Xenopus, tropicalis' had two
non-consecutive nodes with the same name. Can't cope!
But I think this is connected to the new changes to taxonomy handling in
I'm unsure wether to submit this separately, but I could also provide an
example of such a swissprot entry that causes this error.
