This error means that Modeller has run out of space for restraint
parameters. It guesses the dimension for the restraints array from the
number of residues in your system - presumably you have more restraints
per residue than it's expecting. You cannot increase this parameter
directly, but you can increase Modeller's maximum number of residues to
give a correspondingly larger number of restraints - just add


before you read in your PDB files. You may have to tweak this number to
use memory most efficiently.

Note also that Modeller's guess depends on your topology model. It
allocates memory for roughly 400 restraint parameters per atom, and in
turn in the default topology model (3) it assumes roughly 12 atoms per
residue. If you're building an all-atom model, then make sure you have
to tell Modeller this - then it'll assume roughly 20 atoms per residue.
