	This problem should not occur with fasta version 1.5, since
there is no "cutoff".  It will be fixed in version 1.4.  Thanks for
the report.

	If any of you know about other problems with fasta, please tell
me.  It seems silly for people to know about bugs for months or years and
not tell the author of the software.
