This is also a point I did not understand, when building the itp files
for my ionic liquids. I explicitly checked the influence and realized,
that for RB dihedrals the corresponding 1-4 interactions are only
calculated, if the respective atoms are listed in the pairs section. No
matter how nexcl or gen-pairs is set.
