[gmx-users] sudden jumps in RMSD etc.

probably means your trajectory is not continuous enough. I saw the same
thing when I try to "fit" an ensemble trajectory, which each frame is not
from the previous one. Or if your first frame in your trajectory is not
"good looking(or having good rmsd to your target structure)", fit option
cannot fit the rest to such starting structure.
