What genion does is replace a continuous group of solvent molecules with ions.
In order to do that, it needs to know how many atoms are in each solvent
molecule. In the case of water, the OW atom is replaced by the ion and the
following 2 H atoms are deleted, because genion detects that water has 3 atoms.
In your case, whatever the first molecule in your system is has 19 atoms, and
thus genion assumes that the remaining molecules in the group "System" are each
composed of 19 atoms. When it finds that this is not the case, it triggers a
fatal error, rather than merrily deleting 19 atoms at a time to give a horribly
fragmented, completely useless system.
