AMBER: Imaging problem

I have a homodimer protein (each dimer has 99 residues), which during my
periodic box-simulations (explicit waters) separated. I then tried
Imaging using the following command:
trajin wt.restrt_2500

trajout wt2500imaged pdb

center :1-99 origin

image :100-198 origin center



I also tried:

trajin wt.restrt_2500

trajout wt2500imaged pdb

center :1-99

image :100-198 center



The dimers do reform, but the problem is that now there are hugh VDW
contacts between atoms. For example, I have an Oxygen from one monomer
that is 1.97A to a Nitrogen of the other monomer.

I checked the MD energy and so there is no "clashing" between the atoms
during MD. The problem only occurs when I do the "imaging".

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Cheers, Steve
