It looks suspiciously like he isn't using bioperl-live code (I  
changed the exception to a warning a while back, and I think the '.'  
truncation was fixed).  This is still an outstanding issue with  
bioperl-db which hasn't been fully fixed yet, though; we may have to  
move the priority up on this one.
