Hi, am I being stupid or ...?

Apparently range queries do not work on dates: 
try the following:
	getz -f 'dat' '[swissprot-date# 19950101:19950301]'
or the equivalent on for instance the EBI SRS server - it returns a
lot of entries with no date in the range. In contrast, doing a range
query on the SeqLength field works as expected. And yes, the Date
field is an integer ...

Cheers /staffan
