We had also some sequencing problem with GC rich regions. We used the tDt 
step according to DeShazer et al Biotechniques 17, 288-289. At some piont 
we had also to separate the samples on highly denaturing gel that 
included formamide according to Kapelner et al BioTechniques 17,64-67. 
Beware of these urea/formamide gel: they have to be loaded warm (so it 
does't let you a lot of time before polymerization) and they are very 
hard to dry (for that cover them after drying with baby powder).
