hm... it's getting a bit complicated. Could you please send me the PDB
file (or its part containing the residue in question plus a couple of
residues on both ends)? I need to reproduce this problem myself to be
able to explain what's happening and how to deal with this.
I guess you need to import a CIF file for modified residues into COOT so
it can rotate about torsions.
