Rogan is right. Thanks. The .dcd file does indeed contain the cell
dimensions for each frame. I wasn't aware of that.
The cell dimensions correspond to those in the .xst file, but are
different from what I get when combining the .xst file with the .dcd
trajectory in VMD. I'm now working with the dimension from the .dcd
trace so it doesn't matter to me, but I still find this potentially
