Dear Gareth,

   The entry you have below looks fine, but you also need to modify the 
line at the top of the file that indicates how many entries are in each 
section (two lines after the @<TRIPOS>MOLECULE).  The format of the line is:
  #_of_atoms  #_of_bonds #_of_substructures #_of_features #_of_sets

For example, the section might look like this for a ligand:

         20      20      1       0       0

Hopefully, this will take care of your problem,
