[gmx-users] New residue in FF does not bond to others.

Cause now what happens is that grompp requires bonding parameters for atoms
which are actually bonded and for which are not (angle and dihedral
parameters), e.g. CH6-Ser69 and CH6-Phe65 is what I want but I do not want
connection between Ser69-Phe65. Now grompp asks me about bonding paramters
for atoms which build all three residues while these residues are separated
by more than 4 atoms.
