I can't see any problems, using loadpdb to load complex.pdb into LEaP. Can
you give the *exact* sequence of commands that you gave to encounter this

Note that you have _very_ short distances between the two molecules: O5 of MAA
and C10 of BE2 are only 1.6 Ang. apart. O5 of MAA and H74 of BE2 are only
1.3 Ang. apart. This should still not cause problems because you have a TER
card between the systems, but you might see if the problem is related to
having such a bad starting geometry.
