I'm sure mdrun will require a .tpr that has the same number of atoms as 
the trajectory you are analyzing. The way to get a subset of the bonded 
interactions is to only define in the .top file that set in which you 
are interested. You don't mess with the atom definitions however. For 
speed, turn off evaluation of all the non-bonded interactions somehow.
