I think it should work if you can write a script to start the residue
numbering over again at 1 once you get to 10,000 residues. I don't know
what you pdb file looks like for the large residue numbers, but the above
trick should work. Basically, LEaP looks to see if the residue number has
changed in order to decide when to create a new residue.

...good luck...dac
