What is the nature of the bonds you are adding (or of the atoms 136 and 568)?
Is there any chance that you are adding a bond that is already present?
Are you completing a "square", by adding a bond to two atoms that are already
separated by three bonds? If you leave out one or both of the "bond"
commands, does the error go away?

Basically, you need to try to figure out the details of the particular
part(s) of the system LEaP seems not to like.

..good luck...dac
