It could be a bug that is resolved after 4.5.5, but nobody has enough
information to know. You'll be far better off getting 4.6.5 installed.
Also, 50ps is a rather quick equilibration, so instability leading to
http://www.gromacs.org/Documentation/Terminology/Blowing_Up is possible,
depending what you're doing.
Following is taken from the log file giving the error:

Ill-conditioned numerical models do not have reliable behaviour. Better
equilibration is almost certain to resolve your issues.
