Hello all --

I recently installed a distribution of the new GROMACS 5, and I am finding
myself in somewhat of a rut to perform implicit solvent simulations on the

To put it simply, if I specify the cutoff-scheme as Verlet, GROMACS fails
at grompp, because "Implicit solvent is not (yet) supported with the with
Verlet lists."

However, if I change cutoff-scheme to group, then I run into trouble upon
mdrun, because "OpenMP threads have been requested with cut-off scheme
Group, but these are only supported with cut-off scheme Verlet."

Grr!  Am I missing something, or is the simulation I want to do currently
not possible?  And if that's the case, would you recommend returning to
GROMACS 4, or what else?

Thanks in advance to the GROMACS gurus out there,
