This is definitely a bug.  Two suggestions: a) try the Phaser-MR GUI
instead, it may not have this problem, or b) update to the latest nightly
build and see if it's fixed there.  I will see if we can add a regression
test for specifying a fixed ensemble.

a model for one protein of a 2-component complex from scratch, while
keeping the other component unchanged (and using it to calculate the
phases)? Is that possible?

I think you need to define the existing component as ligands, as described


I suspect this means that you'll need to supply an initial map for phases,
rather than having it calculate them from the "ligands", but I've never
actually tried this myself.
