Indeed, a patch ;-) The problems you have are the proof that I have
never generated a trajectory containing DNA, because it never worked.
Residue names in a trajectory description should always consist of
three letters, but most nucleic acid residue names are shorter.

Fortunately the fixes are simple and already done. This looks like a
good opportunity to release a beta version of the upcoming MMTK 2.2;
especially the new installation procedure (based on the Distutils
package) needs some more testing. I have one more bug to fix though,
so it will be this evening or even tomorrow. Stand by for further
