I tried to make this message informative....If there are N "moving" atoms,
they must be the first N atoms in the molecule (when igb>0 as the message
states). You have moving hdyrogens interspersed with non-moving heavy

Best suggestion: use sander_classic for this sort of calculation: the
restriction on the belly atoms does not apply there. In general, "vacuum"
simulations (where you might use igb=2 or 3 in sander) will probably run
faster and with fewer limitations if you use sander_classic.

...hope this helps....dac
