Restraints during NPT on the water may not be stable. It shouldn't require this
level of effort to keep water molecules from leaking into the membrane. Note
that some water in the membrane is fine, e.g. around the ester region. Anything
further may be problematic but with enough time the waters will probably find
their way out again. If you still have lots of void space even after NVT, it
probably indicates that the initial configuration was constructed poorly.
