Hi John,

Can you expand on that with a specific example (ideally on the galaxy-dev
list, CC'd, since BLAST+ isn't event available on the public galaxy)?

Also which version of BLAST+ are you using since I recall some changes
to the tabular output IDs prior to 2.2.25 (which is what the wrappers were
tested on, I've not tried 2.2.26 yet).
