I saw a similar description in the archives a long time ago when I was looking
for help on do_dssp and experiencing similar problems (with a simpler system,
granted). Which group are you selecting for running do_dssp? These errors
seem to come up if you select any group other than 'MainChain' (choice 5, I
believe). If do_dssp is finding an incorrect number of "residues," perhaps you
have selected 'Protein' instead of 'MainChain' for your analysis?
