Yes please.

With hindsight, "Could you try using the gnu debugger (gdb) to get
a stack trace?" would have been clearer. Are you familiar with gdb?

Was it the "Do you fancy *activity*?" phrasing that was unclear?
Basically meaning "Would you like to do *activity*?".

It looks like if you tried to use Biopython's Bio.Entrez module to
parse XML files from the NCBI it would crash. If you are not going
to use that module, you should be fine.
