Hi all,

By the way, I would like to mention that the bug has been fixed. It was 
a problem with the way how the alignment was presented to the user 
afterwards, i.e., a problem of the formatting algorithm. The alignment 
itself was correct and also when obtaining the GappedSequences after the 
alignment, these were correct. The problem was that the formatter was 
started with the original lenght of the sequences, which is usually to 
short after inserting gaps. This is now solved and the alignment should 
work fine now.
