Even for proteins, Insight adds a variety of idiosyncrasies to the pdb
files that Amber doesn't recognize. I found the best way is to just
keep ripping out all the Insight specific stuff until xleap stops
complaining when you save the *.crd file.

the example on page 55 of the Amber 7 manual (loadPdbusingSeq). But
then again, maybe you will just have to add the bonds manually.
