Retrieving non-sequence entries (like prosite and pdb) seems
to work with us (haven't tested them all though). It looks to
me all the sequence databases have to be re-indexed because
sequences are now treated as objects. So when you try to
use the old indices with the new .i and .is files, you'll
get an error saying that the sequence is not of the "object"
type. Using the old .i and .is files with 5.1 still seems
