First things first, I am not a perl guru and don't have any suggestions about
the trailing ";" on the dummyclone object.

Oh dear, well I tried your dummy ace file with tace and it worked fine producing
a dummyclone object with the correct tags and also an xreffed dummyseq object.

One thing does occur to me though, we have had problems with the underlying code
that does xreffing/aliasing/blending of objects. What version of acedb are you
using ?

If its not the latest monthly build then perhaps you should get hold of that and
try the above again because we believe that the xref code now works correctly.

cheers Ed
