Question about targetsNumSteps in ColVar

Hi NAMDers,

I have one confusion about using multiple targets in the harmonic block of ColVar. It's probably been answered before, but I can't find related messages through google.

Say I set two targets at "targets 4.0 13.0" and I want the first target to be reached in 40000 steps, and the second to be reached in 90000 steps. The total number of steps will be 130000 steps.
For the "targetsNumSteps" entry, should I put "40000 90000" or "40000 130000"?

Thanks and best regards,
