Sorry for the confusion. "map" should be added if you add a ligand 
type explicitly to .gpf file. I was thinking that your problem is similar to 
Monica's problem when I posted and hsg1 is an example used for debugging.

In your case, something else is causing a problem, since you used which adds "map *.*.map" lines automatically.

>>>-o complexLLFGAPVYV.gpf -l complexLLFGAPVYV.ligand.pdbqt -r 
>>>complexLLFGAPVYV.receptor.pdbqt -p ligand_types="A C Cl H F OA N P S Br 
>>>NA SA HD" -p gridcenter="grid center coordinates" -p npts="grid points"

Instead of "grid center coordinates" and "grid points" use ADT or similar tool 
to find numeric values for these parameters (e.g. npts="60 60 60"). You can use 
'auto' for gridcenter in which case autogrid will use the center of the 

There is recent thread about a bug in If you type 
gridcenter="2.5 6.5 -7.5" you might end up with
gridcenter 2.5                      # xyz-coordinates or auto
in your .gpf instead of
gridcenter 2.5 6.5 -7.5             # xyz-coordinates or auto

Add the missing numbers with a text editor if this is the case.

>>>complexLLFGAPVYV.gpf -l complexLLFGAPVYV.glg

Do you get segmentation fault after this step? If not, type
more complexLLFGAPVYV.gpf
or run autogrid4 without "-l complexLLFGAPVYV.glg" to monitor the progress.
