but you must understand that is not obvious that a  local variable  
made persistent ($blastResult) because you return it.... should keep  
reference to temporary files that are only built for blastall  
execution needs.  All the data are send to doblast via memory vars  
and returned via memory vars...  BioPerl ought to convert the content  
of the result to local memory vars and close and delete any /tmp/ 
temporary files before returning!!  IMHO.
