With a single ion, the only thing you can observe is the energy, right?
Does that differ? If not, then there's a problem. You may not be sourcing
the correct .itp file when you re-run grompp (e.g. check by making a
deliberate syntax error). Or there may be a code problem (don't think this
was a fix any time, but you could try with 4.6.5).

As grompp should be warning you, this is generally not good practice in
these kinds of simulations. Angular is better, IIRC. Here, all you are
probably observing in the trajectory is the propagation of the velocity,
since there can be no force.
