See http://www.gromacs.org/Documentation/Terminology/Reproducibility

Your current run is using mdrun -npme -1 (the default). Probably the 
former run was also, but zero was chosen by mdrun. The latter was 
recorded in the checkpoint file, and now mdrun is telling you that there 
may be some degree of discontinuity between the runs if you were to have 
changed something else that would lead to zero not being chosen this 
time (e.g. running on more nodes). If you specify the same suitable 
value each time for -npme, this warning will never occur.
