But this should not have a large effect on the simulation.
Having all cut-off's at 1.3 is more accurate, but is
computationally more expensive.

Something else:
Are you using constraints?
If you use constraints you should be able to use a time step
of at least 0.002 and maybe even up to 0.005.

Many other things could be wrong.
The most probable cause is always an not well equilibrated
starting structure.
But there could also be an error in your topology.

What is your tau_t?
The coupling time for temperature bath should be a least
a factor of two smaller than tau_p.
