wrong velocity in steered molecular dynamics

Hi all,
I'm running a SMD simulation, and I defined SMDVel as 0.00001 (angstroms/timestep). The *log file confirms this velocity: "Info: SMD VELOCITY 1e-05 ANGSTROM/TIMESTEP"
However, during my simulation I find that the SMD atoms travel 38 angstroms in 800 timesteps (0.0475 A/time-step or a whooping 5000 meters/second...)
Can anyone offer some insight as to what is going on?
