Hi, Xuji

I hope you also subscribed to gmx-user.

First, you shall know that mailing list is not only meant to solve your
own problem but to leave an archive for other users to take as
reference. Many other subscribers may not reply but they are keeping an
eye on the outcome of the thread.

Second, what I meant in "cut" is when you draft a reply, you shall
tailor the original mail and your reply to make your reply relevant to
one paragraph and one sentence. It is alright to remove the points that
you don't reply because the archive will have all mails in one thread.
What you did is to include the whole digest, a bundle of mails, which
includes mails not originated from your mail together. This is not a
good practice.

Towards your problem, I hope that you follow what Carsten wrote. On top
of it, I am aware that you used CVS version, it would be good to take
latest stable versions like 3.3.3 and do scaling test.

Lastly, when you reply this mail, make sure that you only write to
gmx-users at gromacs.org. I am already subscribed to this list.
