It's more exciting than that: Old versions of Prank created .xml and .dnd
files by default, and had "-noxml" and "-notree" options to avoid creating
them (or clean them up, whichever). New Pranks do not create these files by
default, but do have "-showxml" and "-showtree" flags if you want them.

I removed the use of these flags in the unit test. One of the tests used
the set_parameter method, so I substituted the "-dots" flag for "-notree".
It passes on my machine now:

The doctests in Bio/Align/Applications/_Prank.py should probably change,
too, since the same flags are used there. (I have not done this.)
