Problems with Phylip tree plotting

Hi

I'm aligning sequences with ClustlW and want to get the guiding tree plotted.
For this purpose, I create a "Phylip" tree with ClustalW and then
put it in drawgram, a Phylip program accessible in GCG8.
This works fine as long as I don't change the names in my tree file.
It appears that if I replace the accession numbers used to denominate the
sequences by more explicit names (so more large names) drawgram gives
only a part of the plotfile (the first braches and names). 

In the PostScript output, drawgram "draws" the letters as if they
were drawing objects, so I can't do any search and replace in the
PostScript file itself, it has to be done before.

Does anyone know about restriction in the size of the name in Phylip.

Thanks,

Cedric Govaerts
