ok, thanks.

i could identify the cause for the segfault and change the
psf plugin code so that it doesn't cause a segfault anymore.

however, the cause is - as john mentioned - that the regular
psf format cannot hold a system this large and thus the
module in the psf reader plugin gives up when reading the
bonds section.
reading the .pdb file works fine, though.

if that is not sufficient, you have to go with what john suggested.
