The "0 0 2" should be fine. Can you say *exactly* what syntax you are using
in LEaP? i.e. when you say "the prep file was then able to create a library
file", what commands are you using?

This works for me:

   cd $AMBERHOME/test/antechamber/tp
   tleap -s
      saveOff TP

Note that the "" file has "0 0 2" at the top. And the
"" file above has the correct name in the entry.TP.unit.residues
