I looked in my Cell book to see what you were talking about.  Both of these
structures are very stable structures.  Tryptphan is stabilized by the ring
structures and Arginine is stabilized by its resonance ability.  I would say
that these two amino acids are able to H-bond, but it is very unlikely due to
resonance.  That would be my guess.
