Hi Marjolein,

I guess the problem is in the TLS selection - the older versions were 
not very good in saying this clearly... but I'm not sure.

- can you try the latest PHENIX from the nightly build:

or better

- can you send me the input PDB and parameters file (and .log file too), 
so hopefully I can quickly find out what's wrong?
