I know the tutorial system is robust enough that it won't matter. That is not
necessarily true for whatever other system you come up with. Be careful when
extrapolating something that works in a tutorial with something that is
untested. The general logic is the same (you need to equilibrate for a little
while first), but you have to think a bit about the proper settings. There is
also no guarantee that the length of time I set in the tutorial simulation
processes (equilibration, SMD, and umbrella sampling) will necessarily be
sufficient for whatever you're doing.

The only way to find them is to look. I have no special advice for this.

Then clearly something was broken across PBC, which means there is no real problem.
