Your simulation isn't stable. Output frequency should have no bearing on
whether or not the simulation runs; you're just flushing the buffer more often
so you see more output. Add that to the fact that MD is chaotic, you can't make
any cause-and-effect relationship here.
Without your full .mdp file and the output of EM (Epot, Fmax), there's not much
to suggest beyond the "blowing up" link Mark sent you before.
