This probably has nothing to do with GLU vs GLH, but to the fact that the
Amber minimization scheme doesn't know anything about SHAKE. The results
you obtain are to be expected.

If you are just minimizing prior to carrying out molecular dynamics
simulations, you are probably fine already. If you need to get a better
minimum, you must turn off shake.

...good luck...dac
