parameters for GB use

Dear Amber users

My question concerns the use of the Generalised Born (GB) solvation method.
Since the PME method is "always on" in the AMBER6 version of Sander
and PME is only intended for periodic system simulations,
how are the non bonded terms now computed in the case of the a GB
simulation in a non periodic system ?

Does the code then utilise atom based cutoffs and does the 'CUT' parameter
still control these terms ?

Finally, is the default value of SCEE=1.2 the correct value for a GB study ?

Thanks for any answers.
