[MMTK] bad lysine protonation

I have tried out one of the test scripts from the MMTK web site to read in a protein structure, add hydrogen atoms and then write out a PDB file. However, the lysine sidechain seems to be neutral rather than charged - two hydrogen atoms are added to an apparently sp2 sidechain nitrogen. I also noticed this on another protein that I was working with, so it is not restricted to this particular PDB file.
Here is the script I used (comments removed and a PDB entry used):
from MMTK import *
from MMTK.PDB import PDBConfiguration
from MMTK.Proteins import PeptideChain, Protein
configuration = PDBConfiguration('1B2F.pdb')
chains = configuration.createPeptideChains()
insulin = Protein(chains)
Any comments as to what is going on would be appreciated.
