Hi Aaron,

The example in attachment #1568 from comment #1 is invalid. The feature
location join(16024^16026..16569,1..576) is wrong since the caret should be

That example should probably be a between location like

However, the example in the original bug report, 1000..1001^1002, looks
possible (but unprecedented to my knowledge) and that also fails with the
latest Biopython GenBank parsing code (much changed since Biopython 1.54). I
don't really understand how that usefully differs from 1000..1001 or 1000..1002

Was that from a GenBank file from the NCBI? If so what accession please, or a
