OK, 4_8 parsing has been tightened up a lot, there were many places where we
either didn't report errors or reported them incorrectly. You will get some
messages that you didn't see before. If you have an instance where you think the
message is in error then let me know, my intention was that the parse messages
should be as accurate as possible, especially because AcePerl makes use of them
to detect when/where errors occurred.

Sorry, but you are going to have to show me your Sequence class definition
before I can comment further.

If you want to do bulk updates you can use the tace interface and use the pparse
command to just keep going when an error occurs...of course whether this is
desireable is up to you to decide !
