The changes in the order did indeed speed up the simulation, by about 30%.
One problem, though is that it is impossible to use settle with this ordering.
If you specify the oxygen in [settles], as so:

[ settles ]
; i     funct   doh     dhh
4       1       0.09572 0.15139

you get the error:

Fatal error: [ file "/home/mrshirts/gmx/share/top/tip4pgmx.itp", line 23 ]:
             Atom index (4) in settles out of bounds (1-4)
             Settle works on atoms 4, 5 and 6

Presumably, if the contraints are tight enough, then you'll get the same
answer whatever contraint method is used, but it might be useful for settle to
handle other molecular orders.
