[AMBER] No solvent overlap

Dear amber users,

I am trying to simulate a protein-DNA complex. But I have some problems
to set up a water box with physiological salt concentration. Some of the
ions are placed outside of the box during the grid calculation. In a
periodic boundary simulation, these ions would lie in another box and
probably overlap there with some water molecules or even the solute of
this box. What is going wrong here and how can I fix this? The strange
thing is that the same input worked pretty fine with amber8. Here is the
input for leap:

source leaprc.ff99bsc0
loadoff DCP_final.lib
loadoff MG.off
TAQ = loadpdb 3ktq.pdb
mods = loadAmberParams frcmod_phosphate
solvateoct TAQ TIP3PBOX 12
addions TAQ Na+ 66 Cl- 44
saveamberparm TAQ taq.top taq.xyz

Any help would be highly appreciated.
