Many analysis tools will give these inconsistent shift errors when you
have periodic molecules in the system.
This has not changed in version 4.0.

g_rdf only uses requires the shifting for removing pairs that are excluded
through bonded interactions.
If you do not encounter such pairs in your analysis, or you don't care about
the peaks they will cause at short distance, you can supply only an
index file to g_rdf and no tpr file. In that case the shift code will not be used.
