There are other issues with your structure that you included in your bug report (and I will be getting back to you on those) but one thing I can say immediately and that is of general relevance is that if you modify a standard residue then you have to change the residue name.  Chimera assigns atom types and charges to standard residues (i.e. a residue with a standard name) by using a template -- and such atom types and charges will not be correct if the residue has been modified.  Furthermore, the underlying MMTK minimization code also uses templates for standard residues and expects all the normal atoms and bonds to exist.
