Spurious errors in pcr.seqs

In mothur 1.33.1 using pcr.seqs on some reference files is producing errors like these:

[ERROR]: silva.bacteria.fasta6694.num.temp is blank. Please correct.
[ERROR]: 6675.temp is blank. Please correct.
[ERROR]: name mismatch in pcr.seqs

However, the file appears fine, and the hashes match a version produced without displayed errors in 1.32.1.

Easy to reproduce:

pcr.seqs(fasta=silva.bacteria.fasta, start=10000, end=20000, processors=8)

Thanks for reporting this. The command is actually running correctly, just reporting errors incorrectly. I will release a 1.33.2 on monday to remove the unnecessary error messages.
