[AMBER] problem with energy calculations

I have been modelling a peptide and am trying to carry out energy
calculations of it in the gas-phase. For this I use the mm_pbsa script,
but using only MM.

I am able to calculate the energy of just the peptide. However when I
include counterions (but no solvent), I get an error message:

'The system has extended beyond the extent of virtual box'

If I do reimaging of the trajectory (image center familiar) then I dont
get this error message. However the energies that are calculated give
very high vdW energies for certain frames. This I think is because
counterions have come into close contact in these frames.

I cannot think of any more possible solutions for this, so wandering if
anyone help me.
