[gmx-users] Fwd: KALP-15 in DPPC Tutorial Step 0 Segmentation Fault

New to Gromacs.
Worked my way through the tutorial with relatively few issues until the
Equilibration stage. My system blows up!!
Returned to the Topology stage and rebuilt my system ensuring that I
followed the procedure correctly for the InflateGro process. It appears
to be correct, reasonable lipid area, no water inside my bilayer, vmd
shows a structure which appears normal (although I am new to this).
There are voids between bilayer and water molecules, but this is to be
Energy Minimization repeatedly produces results within the expected range.
Again system blows up at equilibration, step 0 segmentation fault.
Regardless of whether I attempt the NVT or Anneal_Npt process (using the
provided mdp files, including the updates for restraints on the protein
and the lipid molecules).
I have attempted many variations of the nvt.mdp and anneal_npt.mdp files
hoping to resolve my issue, but with no success. I will post the log
information from the nvt.mdp file included in the tutorial.

As you can see the Potential Energy is reasonable, but the Kinetic
Energy and Temperature seem unrealistic.
I am hoping that this is enough information for a more experienced
Gromacs user to provide guidance.
Note: that I have tried all of the suggestions that I read on the
mailing list and in the "blowing up" section of the manual, specifically:
-reduced time steps in Equilibration Stages
-reduced Fmax during EM stage (down as low as 100kJ which did not help)
-modified neighbours list parameters
Any help is appreciated.
I can attach and forward any further information as required, please let
