Subject: [AMBER] Restraining counterions?

A small doubt. During the restrained preliminary procedures (density
equilibration, heating) with a protein in a hydrated lipidic membrane,
and an extra layer of water, are Na+ counterions (added to neutralize
the protein charges) to be treated as WAT, i.e. never restrained? Some
Na+ are inside the hydrated lipidic layer, others in the surrounding
water layer (positioned by leap'd "addions").
