Your observation is correct: it is a very small step.

You probably know the answer already and I don't see the use of
answering this question. But obviously, you can't continue with such
errors. The following hints that something is very, very wrong. It's
hard to tell what it is as you don't give any command lines.
Apparently there are two bonded atoms that are at a distance of 2.6
nm! One thing that I can think of is that you used the output from
trjconv for further setting up of the simulation. These steps in the
tutorial are only for visualization of the simulation cell. You should
take the output from genbox (solvated.gro) and use it as input to
grompp. If this is a wrong diagnosis of your error, please provide
more information on what you did.
