It turns out I eventually experienced the same issue with two GPUs, it just
took much longer to manifest.
It looks to be a problem with using the useFlexibleCell or useConstantArea
parameters. I was using these as part of a lipid membrane simulation, but
have been experimenting without them and the results seem to be OK without
the associated temperature, energy, or artifact problems I was having with
them enabled in conjunction with CUDA2.
