Does anyone have any tips abnout using the MSMS surface representation
w/ VMD.

MSMS looks like it works fine as a stand-alone program, but every time I
it from VMD, I get the following message:

Info) Starting MSMS with: '/usr/local/bin/msms -no_area -socketPort 1401
> /dev/tty &'
ERROR) Unknown MSMS message: Too many or Too few points : 0
Info) Done with MSMS surface.

Any help would be appreciated.
