Hi,

Here is a problem ("attributes are not identical across measure variables; they will be dropped") that I face while running the readcufflinks command.

I'm getting the same warning. I wish the message was more informative (which attributes, which variables). I have no idea if this is something I should be worrying about or not. Presumably I'm losing some information, but how much?

Okay, I think I've figured this out. It looks like this is a warning that reshape2's `melt()` function produces when you're trying to melt different factor columns into a single value column. I suspect (haven't dug through the source) `readCufflinks()` is using `melt()` internally when it creates the SQLite DB. All this means is that the factors are coerced to strings before the melt happens. If I'm right, you can safely ignore these warnings.

If the writers/maintainers of cummerBund wanted to they could probably clean up this error by coercing factors to strings explicitly, but I can see that it would be low-priority.
