Hi all,

I get a 'segmentation fault' (see below) when I try to load up a GROMACS
trajecotry. I'm only getting this error with one particular trajectory
(others load up just fine). Does that mean there's a problem with my
trajecotry file? (there was no indication from GROMACS that that's the
case, it seemed to run fine). Or am I missing something in VMD?
