Yup, that is exactly the problem and, as you quite nicely found out,
we've worked out a fix for this.

There has been a lot of work on both Martel and Biopython since the last
release (we really need to roll a new release, I know), so your best bet
to get everything working is to get a CVS checkout of biopython and work
with that. If you have CVS set up, instructions are at:


Or you can also use the "download tarball" option of our ViewCVS
interface at:


to just get a tarred and gzipped version of CVS.

Hope this helps. Please let us know if you have more problems, and sorry
about the pain.
