In this strange pdb file the hetatm entries inserted at several intermediate positions in the coordinate file. You tried to include them by including X-es in your alignment but it does not work like this. At first, if you do not read in HETATM entries, which is the default situation, (look at command HETATM_IO) than Modeller skips these entries so you do not need to include them in your alignment file either. Second, even if you include them you should not stick on the PDB file residue numbering (it is often chaotic): for some reason in your case the numbering skips by three at the HETATM enty although there is only one HETATM entry. You included 3 X-es accordingly, you need only one. Modeller renumbers the file by simply reading in order all the coordinate entries from the file irrespectively what numbering is associated with the entries in the PDB file. Third, if you do include HETATM entries you should indicate it by "." and not by "X". If you just replace your X-es to "." and instead of XXX you use a single "." your setup already works for me.
I suggest you send your questions to the Modeller mailing list in the future, you might have answers from others and others also can learn. Please look at: http://salilab.org/cgi-bin/lwgate/lwgate/MODELLER_USAGE/
