I am trying to test swarms-string method tutorial using NAMD. NAMD 2.11 can
run successfully but I faced problems using NAMD2.12 below:

colvars: Trying to assign a colvar value with type "scalar number" to one
with type "3-dimensional unit vector".

FATAL ERROR: Error in the collective variables module: exiting.

I attached the colvar configure file.
