Re: REST and Periodic Cell Issues

Hi Robyn, that type of error usually occurs early on in the equilibration
of a system, when the unit cell fluctuations are larger. But especially
for a smaller system, occasional fluctuations and long-time changes may
break the patching design that NAMD assign at the start of the run. I've
seen it happen a few times, regardless of solute scaling.

Possible workarounds may be increasing margin (unless done so already) or
use shorter run segments (maybe packed into a long job for the queue
system) so that the patching subdivision is closer to the most current
shape of the unit cell.
