supposing that the electric field you want to use is a function of time (I'm
not expert on using such external fields...) than it's important to set
"firsttimestep" in the inputfile correctly each time you resubmit (0.5ns * m,
where m=0,1,2,... for each resubmission).
If "firsttimestep" is not set in the inputfile than it is set to zero by
default causing the electric field to be set E(t=0) at each resubmission so
the value jumps back...
