This is a bug in sander, in that it only creates residue-type names for
the first "matom" atoms (where matom is defined in nmr.h).

So, the simplest thing to do is to increase matom in nmr.h to a number larger
than the highest number of atom that a shake constraint will be removed.

Or:

apply the following patch to set.f:

*** set.f 3 Apr 2006 23:35:55 -0000 9.0
--- set.f 30 May 2007 21:36:43 -0000
***************
*** 665,670 ****
--- 665,671 ----
        jano = ix(ijbh+i-1)/3 + 1
        if( noshakegp( iano ) == 1 .or. noshakegp( jano ) == 1 ) then
           ix(noshake+i-1) = 1
+ if( iano<=matom .and. jano<=matom) &
           write(6,'(a,a,a,a)') ' Removing shake constraints from ', &
                resat(iano)(1:13),' -- ',resat(jano)(1:13)
           num_noshake = num_noshake + 1

This sounds like a different problem, for which we would need more information
to be of any help.

....good luck....dac
