Sequence names in stand-alone BLAST changed to numbers?

Howdy,

I've recently started using standalone BLAST, but I've found that when
the BLAST report is made, the program has replaced the Sequence Names
with numbers.  Is there a flag or something to tell it not to do this?
 Or, is there a simple way to match up the numbers with the sequences?
 It seems they aren't just in order as they appear in the one-line
descriptions where the scores appear.

Here is an example:

QUERY 201 ctgggtgcaatcttgccccaaccccatgactgtgttctggtccaagatggcacagagcatg
320
4     1   .............................................................
120
7     1   ......t.......................c..c.................g.........
120
5     1   .............................................................
120

Where 4, 7 and 5 used to be sequence names, but are not neccesarily
the 4th, 5th and 7th sequences in the one-line descriptions.  I don't
know what other info you might need to know what's going on, but I'm
running this with the "-m 3" flag to get flat, master-slave, show
identities.

Thanks in advance,

Rob
