It sounds like your problem may have little to do with waters, or anything
like that. Have you examined what happens with a pure QM model of a single
phospho-histidine residue? I would suggest making sure that everything is
fine for a single residue before worrying about fine details (especially if
bonds are spontaneously breaking).
