blastn: calculating percent from score

Hello,
Glad to see I am not the only one working on blastn stuff today!
My only suggestion about the missing objects would be to try changing the
Score_bounds value.

My question is:
With the Blastn tag specified ACEDB can calculate percent from score.
How does it do this?
Does it work for both gapped and ungapped blast?
The percent shown when I read in my blast results does not match the
percentage in the blast output. (I'm reading in results from gapped blast
jobs).
In addition if a blast hit is to the negative strand how does ACEDB
display this. I note there is a tag Strand_sensitive which if specified
only shows positive strand boxes. 
Finally  how can I display the name of the blast hit sequence on the Fmap
display.

Many thanks for any help,

Jamie
