Hi Joe,
Not sure what you are looking at, but when I look in the file I see there are no atom coordinates whatsoever!  I.e., no ATOM or HETATM lines between the MODEL and ENDMDL lines.

Intro to PDB format:

I hope this helps,

I'm no expert on PDB internal formatting but it at least looks to me like there are coordinates, sequence information etc etc. I had thought that I had taken care to make sure whole models were saved (not just sel atoms), but I'll replicate it to make sure.
