The shrinking steps are done iteratively. You should not be using editconf,
genbox, or anything else until you have achieved a suitably compact membrane.
This is stated explicitly in the tutorial. After shrinking, run EM, then shrink
again, EM, shrink... until you achieve a reasonable APL value. Then and only
then should you proceed to solvating, adding ions etc (with no manipulation of
the box by editconf).
