I guess this is due to the fact that 72481 entries are more than the 
indexing system can hold (65535). You have two options: 
Either  you split the database in arbitrary pieces or you make use 
of the 13 subdivisions. You have to split in any case with this version 
in XQS. I have no problems with the splitting into 13 sublibraries besides
that fact that XQS cannot hold more than 16 libraries _in_this_version_
of XQS. I circumvented it by having a XQS for DNA and one for Proteins. 

As indicated earlier on this newsgroup PIR International is about announcing 
ATLAS. Maybe you ask them about this particular issue in the most 
up-to-date version. 


DISCLAIMER: This is in no way an official bug fix or advice. This is my 
personal opinion based on the published XQS version 5.3 as available  
in the previous days/months/years.
