Re: problem in restarting

Be sure that the .coor, .vel, and .xsc files you are trying to restart
from are actually specified by the bincoordinates, binvelocities, and
extendedSystem options in the config file and that the log file reports
that they are actually being read in. If the first energy on restart
doesn't match the energy from the step at which the files were written
then you've probably messed this up.

That's the best we can do without log files to look at. Post them on a
webserver somewhere, email a URL, and you might get a useful answer.
