The connectivity is determined by the "chain" designations (M,E,S,3,B) in the
fourth column of your input. Use the "edit" command in xleap to look at
your amino acid, and you can see which bonds are there. Since you sent only
a part of your amino acid, it is not possible for me to see why leap thinks
you have a CW-C bond.

Use the "desc" command in leap to look at the coordinates of water 7341.
Either there really is a long bond, or the program is not getting the
coordinates you want it to get.

....good luck...dac
