So, what algorithm are you using for your long-ranged electrostatic
interactions? Do you know roughly how it works? Does it then make sense
to try to exclude some of the long-range interactions?

You have atoms that are not part of a charge group (or, probably, are
part of one of size one and charge zero.

No, that's the dump from MPI after the error. You need to consult both
the stdout and the .log file.
