[phenixbb] Geometry problems

So the problem has been solved by adding a bond line into the CIF that
explicitely tells phenix that the "bond" should be 4 angstroms instead of
2.1. But I don't understand why Phenix would somehow see that these atoms
should be bonded together. This is a phenyl immidazole ligand with two
nitrogens, one of which is about 1.9 angstroms from the iron (a real
coordination). The other is about 4 angstroms. Why does phenix seem to want
to assign a bond between the nitrogen further away?
