I would guess the error message you're getting is that we haven't 
implemented the 'simple' algorithm for twin-range neighborsearching. 
This is because 'simple' is extremely expensive (order N*N) and normally
you would only use it for reference.

If you have a periodic system, you should use 'grid' neighborsearching

If you are simulating in vacuuo, there's no water, so you won't really 
gain anything by having separate short/long range cutoffs....
