Default tophat2/2.1.0 error running from bam2fastx

I am running tophat2.1.0 (bowtie on SE RNAseq data and encountering the following error:

[2016-02-29 09:38:34] Beginning TopHat run (v2.1.0)

When I run the error output, I get:

Error at parsing .tlst line (invalid strand):
53551 PGSC0003DMT400030180 ST4.03ch12. 56298573-56298656
(ERR): bowtie2-align died with signal 13 (PIPE)

Looking at the GTF file (PGSC_DM_V403_genes.gff from SpudDB), there are a fair number of entries where the strand is recorded as .. Online forums report the same issue but no solutions, save for deleting these entries, where are very numerous. Are there any other solutions I could try?

Thank you,
