at the moment, it is not even clear that there is
an issue. you'll first have to provide some examples
and explanations that document the difference between
what you see and what you expect.

in my experience, a lot of the confusion about residue
numbering goes back to people not understanding correctly
what VMD shows them where. every once in a while a legitimate
problem shows up and then this can be fixed, if there is
a way to reproduce it.

sequence numbers are typically ignored in simulations
(unless you use them for special purposes).
