This is a question for both VMD and NAMD support, so I am sending it to both. I used QwikMD to set up a simulation, and

something I have never seen before has occurred. I placed a membrane protein in a 100x100 DMPC bilayer using

CHARMM-GUI, and then I used that PDB to set up a simulation in QwikMD. Upon observation of the minimization, annealing, and

equilibration DCD files, I noticed the lipid bonds doing something very odd. They seem to be stretching and bonding to other

lipid atoms. I tried attaching pictures, but I don't see it posted to the mailing list. I didn't change anything in the minimize, anneal,

and equilibrate scripts that QwikMD produces, and I've never seen this before with those simulations with these generated scripts...
