Sorry, I had forgotten about the Bio::DB::SeqFeature failures on Windows 
which need to be resolved before an RC is worth releasing. I've pushed 
back RC1 release date to October 2nd; hopefully we can resolve the issue.

It will also give me time to resolve the bioperl-run problems that I 
see, so I can do a unified release.
