Hi All,
I am experiencing a few problems in membrane simulations wrt COM removal. I
downloaded a 400 ns pre-equilibrated Slipid-DMPC membrane with all the
accompanying files. I then carried out the following steps:
1) energy minimization
2) NVT Eq - 100 ps
3) NPT Eq - 250 ps (Berendsen temp, Pres coupling)

Then I used g_select to select the upper and lower DMPC leaflets. The then
carried out a 250 ps NPT eq again. The only change was:
comm-grps                = SOL DMPC     ==>        comm-grps
= SOL upper lower

On every step in log file, I get the following message:

I do not know what to make of it. There are no issues when I remove COM for
the entire system. I have seen this issue come up a few times in the
archives too, but I didn't find a satisfactory solution since the bilayer
was very well equilibrated.

I would appreciate any suggestions. Thank you.
