Hello netters,

First of all, happy new year to all of you.

Second: I have a problem with SRS. I sent mails to T. Etzold and P. Rice 
but in the absence of answers (so far) I'm trying to get help from the
gurus on the net.

Here it is:

In a recent weekly update of the EBI databank appeared the sequences of 
yeast chromosome II and a long E. coli contig, both of them having more 
than 350,000 bp. As you know, GCG will split them into 2 parts.

Now, the second part of the GCG formatted files contains NO accession 
number. When SRS builds its indices from the GCG files, it is confused by 
the absence of AC (at least that's what I understand) and it crashes.
Very very ennoying...

Have you any idea? Can somebody help me? I'm somewhat reluctant to simply 
remove these sequences from the flat file, which in any case could be only 
a very temporary fix...

Thank you
