Whether or not there are short sequences I cannot tell, but the bug was
certainly there, as shown by an (accidentaly) zero length sequence in EMBL one
week last year (only one week) which crashed the GCG version - this was
fixed by GCG, I guess the info on the bug did not filter back, appologies Bill,
I should have alerted you also.
