SRS 5 and "include in list option"

Hello,
I am puzzled by the curious behaviour of SRS5 when it is asked to
produce results including some fields, by using the "Include in list"
check boxes.
I am not aware of a discussion about this on this list. (there is too
much noise from the sex fans...)
I get a proper answer from the searches in PIR and Swissprot on our
server, but for the first entry, the bank ID is shown in capitals, and
for all the next, in small lettres.
like this : (copy-pasted from netscape)
    SWISSPROT:A1AF_CAVPO 

ID   A1AF_CAVPO     STANDARD;      PRT;   403 AA.
DE   ALPHA-1-ANTIPROTEINASE F PRECURSOR (ALPHA-1-ANTITRYPSIN) (ALPHA-1-
DE   PROTEINASE INHIBITOR) (APF) (FRAGMENT).
OS   CAVIA PORCELLUS (GUINEA PIG).


    swissprot:A1AS_CAVPO 

ID   A1AS_CAVPO     STANDARD;      PRT;   405 AA.
DE   ALPHA-1-ANTIPROTEINASE S PRECURSOR (ALPHA-1-ANTITRYPSIN) (ALPHA-1-
DE   PROTEINASE INHIBITOR) (APS).
OS   CAVIA PORCELLUS (GUINEA PIG).


    swissprot:A1AT_SHEEP 

ID   A1AT_SHEEP     STANDARD;      PRT;   416 AA.
DE   ALPHA-1-ANTIPROTEINASE PRECURSOR (ALPHA-1-ANTITRYPSIN) (ALPHA-1-
DE   PROTEINASE INHIBITOR).
OS   OVIS ARIES (SHEEP).

When I try a search with "Include from list" on our EMBL databank, I get
only the first entry, completetly, and the ID of the second entry.
Thereafter, all is blank. Like this (copy/pasted)
		
    EMBL:ASPPRCA 

ID   ASPPRCA    standard; DNA; PRO; 1952 BP.
DE   Anabaena sp.PCC7120 prcA gene


    embl:EC82K 

The same search without asking for "Include..." is complete.

We index the GCG files SRS.

The problem exists on several other servers (Pasteur Paris, SEQNET,
Oxford,...) but others (EBI, Infobiogen, Heidelberg, ...) behave
normally. We have 5.05 running.

Comments ?

I send copy of this to the EMBnet tech manager and to Thure himself...
