 I use NAMD software for a project. Our run constantly crashes with the
following message:

"minimizer slowly moving xxx atoms with bad contacts downhill"

Could you possibly suggest any troubleshooting tips? We have tried so hard
but haven't been able to come up with a solution yet.

We greatly appreciate your response and time.
