Never mind about ions, probably your topology is broken before you got 
started :-) Check your capping groups. If you used pdb2gmx, have a look 
at the right hand (comment) column of the atom listing, where it shows 
the cumulative charge. This will help you find the residue where things 
start getting non-integral.
