           Summary: Bio/trie.c can crash on Windows
           Product: Biopython
           Version: Not Applicable
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows 2000
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Main Distribution
        AssignedTo: biopython-dev at biopython.org
        ReportedBy: mdehoon at ims.u-tokyo.ac.jp

In Bio/trie.c, the function strdup is being used, which is not part of the
ANSI-C standard. As a result, when Bio/trie.c is compiled, the resulting trie
module links to two C runtime libraries (mscvrt.dll and mscvr71.dll), which are
incompatible with each other and can cause crashes. To fix this bug, we need to
write our own strdup function using ANSI-C standard functions.
