Thanks in advance for your continued help with my simulation. I forgot
to add, I am also this warning when building my system in leap:

1-4: angle 914 915 duplicates bond ('triangular' bond) or angle
('square' bond)

1-4: angle 914 916 duplicates bond ('triangular' bond) or angle
('square' bond)

1-4: angle 914 916 duplicates bond ('triangular' bond) or angle
('square' bond)

1-4: angle 914 915 duplicates bond ('triangular' bond) or angle
('square' bond)

1-4: angle 913 915 duplicates bond ('triangular' bond) or angle
('square' bond)

1-4: angle 913 916 duplicates bond ('triangular' bond) or angle
('square' bond)

1-4: angle 913 914 duplicates bond ('triangular' bond) or angle
('square' bond)

1-4: angle 913 916 duplicates bond ('triangular' bond) or angle
('square' bond)

1-4: angle 913 914 duplicates bond ('triangular' bond) or angle
('square' bond)

1-4: angle 913 915 duplicates bond ('triangular' bond) or angle
('square' bond)

1-4: angle 919 920 duplicates bond ('triangular' bond) or angle
('square' bond)

1-4: angle 919 920 duplicates bond ('triangular' bond) or angle
('square' bond)

This is not a problem since the force constant is zero for the angle.
But, I think I actually need to remove this angle in order to run the
simulation to avoid the following error upon trying to do an energy
minimization:

EXTRA POINTS: nnb too small!
nnb,ntot = 3456 7776

With thanks,
Jennie

Thanks for your comment, I do want to change all of the instances of the
atom types involved. I'm running a relatively simple system with only
one of this instance. However, simply setting the force constant to
zero doesn't seem to work due to this nnb,ntot problem.

I'm pretty sure these are related, because when I revert to using a .lib
file without the bonds (only angles defined) the minimization runs.

Cheers,
Jennie
