Have you applied bugfix.15? That improves the error message, and often helps
identify the problem. If that doesn't help, you will probably have to post
your pdb file. But you could certainly look for an atom named "N12" and see
if there is anything odd about it or its environment.

The chirality.c file is in $AMBERHOME/src/leap/src/leap.
