[Biopython-dev] Minor buildbot issues from SearchIO

Hi all,

The BuildBot flagged two new issues overnight,

Python 2.5 on Windows - doctests are failing due to floating point decimal place
differences in the exponent (down to C library differences, something fixed in
later Python releases). Perhaps a Python 2.5 hack is the way to go here?

Python 3.2 and 3.3 on Windows are showing some XML character encoding oddity.
Perhaps there is some encoding setting needed under Python 3 for the BLAST
XML files?

There is a separate cross-platform issue on Python 3.1, "TypeError:
invalid event tuple"
again with XML parsing. Curiously this had started a few days back in
the UniprotIO
tests on one machine, pre-dating the SearchIO merge. I'm not sure what
triggered it.

(Note TravisCI doesn't officially support Python 3.1, although until recently
they did offer it unofficially - Python 3.3 support is happening soon through).
