Dear Neil, Andrew, Russ, seqfans,
In connection with two above excerpts,
I'd like to say
that it's my long-standing feeling that
search window in 
isn't 100% safe.
E.g., I can swear that I've checked A125629,
while submitting, for duplicates,
and the search has given nothing.
I came across with this once and again,
and I'm very interested to know
what Russ - and others - think about 
possibility that search window errs 
from time to time.

Am I the only (frequent) submitter
who is mystified with duplicates
appearing only after NEW SEQ is already in OES?
