You should not manually change the box vectors. The whole point of InflateGRO
is to expand and compress the system. Leave the box vectors it assigns alone.

Larger cutoffs lead to greater numbers of lipids being deleted and thus extends
the time it takes to compress the system back. The value of 14 suggested by the
authors of the script has always worked for me.

That's certainly unusual.

Without seeing your commands and the actual screen output, I can't comment, but
I find this highly unlikely.

No clue. Very little of what you are saying makes any sense to me.
