system becomes very large when set LangevinPiston on

Dear all,

I downloaded "fftw-linux-amd64.tar.gz" and "tcl-linux-amd64.tar.gz" from and plugins for
LINUXAMD64 and "charm-net-linux-amd64.tar.gz" from and NAMD_2.5_Source.tar.gz.

I compiled NAMD with
./config tcl fftw plugins Linux-amd64-g++

I download input files from web site :
and run "namd2 equil.namd>equil.log" on AMD64 opteron.

When run equilibrate with langevinPiston on
# equilibrate volume with CAs restrained
langevinPiston on
run 5000
output equil_ca
the systerm becomes very large and disperse.

I compiled many times and run many other examples and found that all of
the systerms become disperse when set "langevinpiston on". I don't know
why the pressure value is incorrect and the pressure control can't work.

Any tips would be greatly appreciated!
