Hi all, 

I'm running a QM/MM calculation of ions in water and don't understand the 

When I have a 20 by 20 by 20 A QM box sitting in a 40 by 40 by 40 all is 
fine and I can run it as long as I want. However, my QM region is small 
enough to fit in a 10 by 10 by 10 QM box (which would cut the cost A LOT). 
I checked the coordinates and everything and it does fit in the box. Now my 
simulation will crash with a seg fault as follows:

Program received signal SIGSEGV: Segmentation fault - invalid memory

srun: error: n06: task 0: Segmentation fault

I really don't understand what can be the problem. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance
