This is not the case, you have 11573 molecules of which 11571 are water,
1 is protein and the other something else..

Regarding the real problem (1-4 warning): did you do proper minimization?
Does the position restraint file match the starting coordinates, such that
you are not pulling the protein away through the solvent. That could lead
to large forces, and hence to this ind of problem. Are your cut=offs long
