[Bioperl-l] indexed fastq files

Hi Chris,

I am finding that Bio::Index::Fastq seek is chopping off the first
character of the fastq entry. I'm on Linux using bioperl-1.6.1 and
debugged the problem to this point in AbstractSeq.pm:143, where there
is this funny commented line:

		# $begin-- if( $^O =~ /mswin/i); # workaround for Win DB_File bug
		seek($fh, $begin, 0);

If I apply this $begin--, everything works fine, but I am not using
windows, I am on a Linux cluster.

Any ideas why this was tagged as a "Win DB_File bug"?
