We have, at least, one case that when run over 2 nodes, or more, quite
often (always) hangs, i.e. no more output in md.log or otherwise while
mdrun still consumes cpu time. It takes a random time before it happens,
like 1-3 days.

The case can be shared if someone else wants to investigate. I'm
planning to run it in the debugger to be able to break and look at
states when it happens, but since it takes so long with the production
build it is not something i'm looking forward to.
