I just tried it with sleap in amber10 as well. same result. maybe not
surprising. anyway worth mentioning. hmm... can the size of the solute
be a potential problem?

By the way, sleap does not like the closeness parameter:

lars.lars-desktop:~/tmp/solvate_oct_test$ sleap
[gtkleap]$ source leaprc.ff03
using file /usr/local/amber10/dat/leap/cmd/leaprc.ff03
using file /usr/local/amber10/dat/leap/gleap/parm99.dat
using file /usr/local/amber10/dat/leap/parm/frcmod.ff03
using file /usr/local/amber10/dat/leap/lib/ions94.lib
using file /usr/local/amber10/dat/leap/lib/solvents.lib
using file /usr/local/amber10/dat/leap/lib/all_nucleic94.lib
using file /usr/local/amber10/dat/leap/lib/all_aminoct94.lib
using file /usr/local/amber10/dat/leap/lib/all_aminont94.lib
using file /usr/local/amber10/dat/leap/lib/all_amino03.lib
[gtkleap]$ source leaprc.gaff
using file /usr/local/amber10/dat/leap/cmd/leaprc.gaff
using file /usr/local/amber10/dat/leap/gleap/gaff.dat
[gtkleap]$ set default fastbld on
[gtkleap]$ mol = loadpdb protein.pdb
[gtkleap]$ solvatebox mol TIP3PBOX 12.0 0.78
Error: wrong number of arguments
[gtkleap]$ solvateBox mol TIP3PBOX 12.0
box size : 174.180 177.935 172.886
[gtkleap]$

Thanks.
