VMD seems to be unable to read a lammps trajectory file produced by the
latest version of LAMMPS. The reason for this is one line in the dump file -
namely, the "ITEM: ATOMS" line.

The old version of lammps produced the text "ITEM: ATOMS", while the new
version produces "ITEM: ATOMS id mol x y z etc. etc."

This seems to cause the lammps plugin that VMD uses to generate an error. I
currently fix this by modifying the LAMMPS source code to supress extra text
in that line, but was wondering if there is another way around this.
