If there is a consensus on how to fix this problem (if there is a problem) 
let me know so I can check it in to CVS.

It's a 5'overhang and if biojava says otherwise, it is most probably a 
bug. It is just confusing because we use the word "end" to describe both 
the enzyme cuts (end type using biojava javadoc terminology) and the 
strand termini (termination of a strand either 3' end or 5' end).
