I'm not sure why you said "two sequences are exactly the same", perhaps you
meant "two trees are exactly the same". In such a case you should get
100 percent for the bootstrap values. Therefore if you are right that all
the trees are the same, there is a bug. To check this, send me the input
file of trees (not as an Attachment but as the body of an email message.
I will double check and let people know what I find.
