Subject: SwissProt parse error

Full_Name: Øyvind Edvardsen
Module: SwissProt
Version: biopython-1.00a4.win32-py2.2.exe 
OS: Win98SE
Submission from: pc110-137.tromso.avidi.online.no (

When parsing CCR4_HUMAN (P30991) from the
current SwissProt release a SyntaxError exception is thrown at the RN   [6]
chunk of data.
Apparently the parser expects to find only 1 line of RP data following. In this
case (#6) the RP stuff continues on a second line. The error message shown is:
Line does not start with RA.

Solution: allow RP to span more than 1 line.

Keep up the good work!

Øyvind E.
