Normally, a successful MPI installation would have produced an mdrun_mpi
executable, not mdrun. 15 minutes before this email you didn't manage to
configure successfully with --enable-mpi. So probably you are not
running in parallel. Look at the number of .log files produced, and
their first line.
Regarding the LINCS error, your simulation was probably marginally
stable, and got lucky with the integration in 4.0.7 and unlucky in 4.5.
That's life - you should consider the management strategies here
