I am having a strange little problem with the use of MacVector and
GCG format sequence files. Our site is set up so that our Macs are on
the network with the main frame. GCG is setup on the main frame (a UNIX
box, Solbourne). When we transfer the GCG sequence files down to
MacVector sometimes MacVector locks up and once it locks up so does our
Mac. The Mac locks up to the point of no return. You can't even force
MacVector to close. This does not happen all the time on the same file
nor does it always happen at the same point in MacVector.
In general, this occurs when we are saving the file as something, i.e.
as GenBank or GCG, and also dies sometimes when we try to manipulate the
It does not matter that the lock is open or closed. Also, this did not
happen when everyone had to use a modem to access the main frame.
Any and all suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
