Actually, the error lines are the following :
colvars: Error while executing calc_colvar_forces:
colvars: can't read "extendedFluctuation": no such variable
FATAL ERROR: Error in the collective variables module: exiting.
So, I think it's arriving from the "calc_colvar_forces" process of the
tcl script eabf.tcl that I am sourcing during the run. But I couldn't find
any sort of warning line written in that tcl script. So may be its from
some other Tcl script related to colvars.
P.S. eabf.tcl is given with NAMD2.12 package
