  I think that doing what others suggested is the best thing in the short
term, but I wanted to mention that I now have CONECT record reading in the
VMD PDB reader, and I'm working on making it do the right thing since most
PDB files only have CONECT records for a small subset of the bonds in the
system (usually only the unusual ones). I've got a bit more work to do, but
when it's done this will "just work", in the future.
