Some unix instalations has filesize limit of 2GB
so this could be the case.
Check filesize limit by
(in bash, I don't know how to do this in other shells).
if the answer is not "unlimited" type
ulimit -f unlimited
or call your clustermaster.
The precompiled version of gromacs could also have
such limit. I had this problem with Gamess US and I
fixed it by replacement of precompiled version by
one that I compiled myself. Gromacs could also crash
on Athlon without any reason (there are some mails
dealing with this problem in GMX archive).
