Forget it ! I found out myself...

Should you be interested, the answer lies in the GRAIL ftp manual of MAY96 : a
[shadowexon] is a predicted exon (loose definition here, restricted to exons
containing coding ORF) which overlaps a predicted exon on the other strand but
was selected as least probable of the two (incompatible ?) possibilities.
