We still do not have an explanation as to where the 'lost' sequences went.
What is clear, however, is that stripping the banks of the duplicates found 
does not cause the loss of non-duplicate sequence data.

So its OK to strip the UPDATE bank (if you've been waiting).

In the meantine we have implemented sequence base-count checking for each
sequence delivered.  The modified distribution is in NIGHTLY.1 on our 
MAILSERVer, or via anonymous/FTP.  Thanks to Brent Hobbs for the code.
