PME off

Dear Users,

If I run a simple NAMD script with PME off, and no further
parameters stated, what does NAMD do? I expected the electrostatics
to be ignored, but my output file gives a value for the electrostatic
of the energy at every time step.

I am running ##NAMD 2.5b1 for Darwin-PPC##.

Is NAMD doing a simple pairwise calculation using the cutoff parameter
value I gave for the van der Waal parameters?
If so, can I turn this off?
