another subtle detail is when you have an explicit H in the model and
you use constraints... You will find that your molecule only has five
degrees of freedom left (iso 6), so your temperature is not correct.
You may be simulating at an effective temperature of 20% more than what
you think (i.e. Ekin should be divided by 6*nmol iso 5*nmol).
