Hi all,

If anyone is curious about the following unit test failure,

FAIL: test_SeqIO
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "run_tests.py", line 241, in runTest
    assert expected_line == output_line, \
Output  : " Failed: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xe5 in position
0: ordinal not in range(128)"
Expected: " Checking can write/read as 'clustal' format"

This was from converting a new SeqXML file into FASTA, where a
description contained non-ASCII. It works fine on C Python, but was
failing under Jython 2.5.1. The solution? Update to Jython 2.5.2

As part of this work it means all the build slaves now run Jython 2.5.2
rather than a mix of this and Jython 2.5.1 so I have standardised this
for the buildbot. There is now one less column listed here:


or one less row with the other view:


Sadly this seems to have lost the old build history under Jython,
but I don't mind too much.
