It looks to me like NAMD is not treating your atom 37 as a lone pair. The forces on lone pairs are distributed to their support atoms and then set to zero, so I would expect lone pairs to have zero velocity (but I’m having trouble finding that in the code).
If you would post the top of your log file showing the configuration of your system before simulation begins, we could see whether or not your simulation has any lone pairs enabled.
