[gmx-users] Gromacs job locks up computer (reproducibly)

I am currently onto a very strange behaviour of a Gromacs run
on a dual athlon box. The job only used a single processor and
for the second time it locks up the computer without any
error message or distinct sign of what went wrong.

It is a long job, and for the second time it locked the machine
after about 10 days on exactly the same timestep.

As I said, no error message, the machine remains pingable, but
no possibility to login neither via the network nor on the console.
Keyboard is dead.

The gromacs log/data files just stop at that given point.

Has anybody ever experienced something similar ?


Some details:
Gromacs version 3.1.4
Dual Athlon MP2600+, 1GB RAM
kernel 2.4.20-smp (Debian)
