This looks like a problem with your MPI implementation and not a Gromacs

Try setting the environment variable MPI_UNBUFFERED_STDIO as they
suggest before starting the job.

Still, there's something strange going on since we definitely don't
write more than 8192 characters to STDOUT/STDERR without a newline....
