You have a point. It is not possible to change the file formats without 
creating great havoc as I'm sure you understand, but a warning that 
precision is lost in pdb2gmx, editconf, trjconv is a good idea. We 
should not make *any* presumptions about what the user wants to do 
(although it is hard).

I've created redmine issue 846 to remind us of this problem.
