As I have said, time and time again, the above setup will likely give problems.
What you should do is append the relevant directives from lipid.itp into
ffG53a6nb.itp and ffG53a6bon.itp, removing the section called ";; parameters for
lipid-GROMOS interactions," as they pertain to ffgmx.

This isn't going to work either, since Na corresponds to an ffgmx NA+ ion; you
need NA+, which is the correct nomenclature for ffG53a6.

Again, this is an ffgmx atom type, probably because you're using this hacked
topology; including lipid.itp as is calls some ffgmx atom types.
