What script exactly? There was a problem with the SOAP server that was 
fixed earlier today.

What returned undef? Specifics please.

What version of Bioperl were you testing with? What did you do to get it 
to 'spin in a loop'? I can tell you that remote blasting certainly works 
in Bioperl 1.5.2, but you'll have to give more details on the things you 
tried and the problems you encountered.

You can also answer the questions yourself by trying the release candidate.
