[Biojava-l] problems with the profilehmm demo

Just looked at the CVS on line. You are very likely correct.
There used to be a listener for changes in the Alphabet but this was
mistakenly removed as it was thought to be redundant. A diff view is
I will check it back in tomorrow unless some one beats me to it. A
JUnit test is also required to make sure this works.

Because of (**) this will have a length n>0. So that the for loop in this piece of code runs from 0 to n. Here the exception occurs. indexer.symbolForIndex(i) (0<=i<n) cause the error because of (***) indexer.symbols are empty.
