[Bioperl-l] Error retrieving sequence from BioSQL

Those are from the excessively paranoid '-w' flag on the shebang  
line.  If you remove the flag but add the 'use warnings' pragma the  
'subroutine x redefined' warnings go away.  This, BTW, is one of the  
quirks of the ActivePerl distribution; other OSs don't have the same  
problem.

The 'solution' described on that page is actually a workaround, not a  
bugfix.  It causes problems with stack traces with error handling but  
seems harmless beyond that.  I haven't been able to find a  
satisfactory fix which works on all OS's.
