This would have been my first try, but thought the crashes happen seldom and I
automated the restarting process, I will stick to 2fs.
A python script compares the current steps with the total expected steps and
restarts the simulation from the beginning if the current and expected number
of steps don't match. One run is just a round 12h so it does not hurt that
much if the simulations gets restarted here and then.

Thanks and greetings
