[gmx-users] restarting MD after error in the middle of trajectory

Yes, trajectory was corrupted but I did not get any error message during
the run, only when I started to analyse trajectory.
Is there a way to know immediately, during simulation, when trajectory gets
corrupted instead of after use of gmxcheck?
