Bet it has something to do with the dollar sign. If so, it's lucky
that SwissProt dropped them. Looking for "*$*" in other databases
seems to find every entry, regardless of whether there is a dollar
in the name.

All Fred Blattner's E.coli sequence in EMBL has entry names beginning
with "ECU" and SRS finds them perfectly. Ah, I forgot. It's called
the "EURO" now so it doesn't count as an example. Well, it finds
entries with "NEURO" in the name so it's still OK :-)
