[gmx-users] off-diagonal of the tensor for pressure coupling should be zero??

Sunjoo, is there a particular reason why you want to you anisotropic
pressure coupling? (I recently tried this myself, on a DMPC bilayer).
Some of the key membrane physical properties (like thickness, area per
lipid, order parameters) were distorted and did not agree with
experimental evidence. So I went with semiisotropic pressure coupling
instead, that was much better.
