Re: error - atom type not in psf

Alright, upon further reflection, I hadn't considered potential NBFIX
terms for ions within the force field. If NAMD encounters an atomtype
within an NBFIX-specified interaction (such as those for ions with
carbonyls) that wasn't previously identified, this message will crop up
too. This is probably the 1% of time that I was unreasonably certain. :)
