	A minor bug in tfasta has been discovered (that hid for about
four years).  It causes the program to core-dump when it encounters
a DNA sequence shorter than 5 nt.  (Apparently there are several
very short sequences in recent releases from genbank.)

	The bug affects both the older fasta14 and the newer fasta15,
and revised versions of both have been posted for anonymous ftp in
uvaarpa.virginia.EDU:/public_access/fasta14d.shar(.Z) or fasta15b.shar(.Z).
