I'm not familiar with the program Ming - can you point us to a web page?

Regarding rotamer outliers, it may be difficult to completely
eliminate them at this resolution - the dihedral angle restraints are
not very tight.  However, you may need to adjust the backbone to get a
rotameric sidechain conformation to fit the density properly (before
and after refinement).
