COPYING says GPL, but all headers say LGPL

Dear Craig,

	Thanks for the advices. I will put the packaging of Nexus class
libraries on my agenda, but it will take some time as I want to finish
my effort on multiple alignment software first, and as I am almost
ignorant of C(++) programming.

	For this reason, I will try to submit a revised version of
TreeView X to ftpmaster. But as I checked the copyrights, I found
another oddity.

	It appears that, although the COPYING file and the website
claim that TreeView X is GPL, all the source files have Library GPL
headers (except the Nexus ones of course). Technically, what is the
licence of TreeView X? LGPL, or GPL?

PS: For the treelib, it seems that the author is using it in another
program, but I will not try to package it untill I decide to tackle
phylogeny software as a whole.

Have a nice day,
