Sigh. I've been using emacs to edit these files on our server, and
it doesn't show non-printing characters like tabs in a visible way
(at least, not with the default settings - any tips?). Note I'm not
using xemacs, just the terminal based one. And typing a raw
tab involves a tedious control sequence... there probably is an
easier way, but I don't edit these loc files very often.

(Note that user defined BLAST databases are coming soon
to the BLAST+ wrappers, delayed by a hardware problem
on our local system meaning I haven't finished testing it)

Sorry about that - but by reporting this and getting it fixed you've
hopefully saved anyone else suffering this way.

I'm at a meeting all day so I probably won't be able to update
this till next week.
