The error should not be in the tables, if you are using Gromacs 4.
We made sure that the accuracy of the tabulation and interpolation
is nearly the full precision (both in single and double precision).
For these kind of testing purposes you should be using double precision
anyhow, which gives you far more accuracy than 10^-4.
