That's useful feedback. In fact it sounds like there is a
documentation bug (inconsistent documentation is a bug, IMHO). Would
you mind filing a bug report (BioSQL has its own queue now)?

Could you post the error message? The entry you quote in reality is a
Swissprot (or Uniprot) entry sucked up into GenPept, so it's possible
that it's the BioPerl genbank parser that's failing, not bioperl-db. I
recall that we've had issues with these records before, though I don't
recall what the actual cause was, nor the recommended fix. Is there a
requirement that prevents you from loading these entries in their
native Uniprot format?
