Hello, ( cross posted to tutorial-l first, but it doesn't seem to be active
)

Thanks for making NAMD and VMD avalible to the public. I'm not using NAMD
for actual research, so please feel free to drop this into your low priority
queue.

Iíve been attempting to complete the nanotubes tutorial:
http://www.ks.uiuc.edu/Training/TutorialsOverview/science/nanotubes/nanotubes.pdf

However, in step 3.1: Submitting sim_short.conf, I'm unable to submit my
processing request. When I execute the command, it begins processing, then
the Tcl interpreter dies with the error:
TCL: can't read "coorList(577)": no such element in array.

I know a little bit of Tcl and have tried to investigate the error myself,
but with little success. The wiki and previous digests also don't seem to
have any similar reports.

I'm not quite sure how to proceed, so if anyone has any time to give advice,
I would appreciate it. I have included my debug information below, and
attached a log of my attempt to run the command sequence described in 3.1.
