  Before, looking into this further, the first thing I see that is a
problem with your script is that you're using the old "mol load" command,
and not forcing VMD to wait until the DCD file is completely loaded.
I would suggest rewriting the script using the "mol new" and "mol addfile"
commands ("mol load" will be removed from VMD soon), and add "waitfor all" to
the end of the "mol new" and "mol addfile" commands to ensure that the
trajectory is completely loaded before the script continues processing.

The next question is which version of VMD you're using?
