Thank a lot for your very fast response !. Here are the requested details:
1. Version 4.07 is being used.
2. Upgrading from version 4.04 to 4.07 doesn't help.
3. The grompp command given is:
grompp -f MDP/em.mdp -c 1bgq_Complex_b4ion.pdb -p 1bgq_Complex.top
integrator = l-bfgs
nsteps = 50000
nstlist = 1
rlist = 1.0
coulombtype = PME
rcoulomb = 1.0
vdw-type = cut-off
rvdw = 1.0
nstenergy = 10
emtol = 5.0 ; tolerance kJ/(Mol -1 nm-1) instead of 10.0
define = -DFLEXIBLE ; using flexible water model
5. The grompp command is issued in this case, before genion. However,
even when running it alone the same problem arises.
6. The program is being run on Fedora 12 inside
7. Running the same command on another OS and type of
machine(fc10.x86_64) does not solve the problem
7. The output:

Back Off! I just backed up mdout.mdp to ./#mdout.mdp.6#
checking input for internal consistency...
