Thanks for the suggestion, but as a check I appended the following lines 
from the Atoms/ar to my Atoms/mg and I still get the same error.

LJ_radius = 3.4*Ang
LJ_energy = 120*K*k_B

b_coherent = 1.909*fm
b_incoherent = 0.*fm
b_coherent_deut = 1.909*fm
b_incoherent_deut = 0.*fm

I hope I don't need to go mucking with the Amber files. Does anyone else 
have ideas?
