Iris,

yes, i have seen this too.
It seems to be a bug, because the simulation results look ok.
Lets report it to Protel.
GMIN is one of the spice variables. Actually its the conductance (1/R) of
the resistors that spice places in parallel with any semiconductor p-n
junction during the simulation to avoid floating. You can change the value
under Simulation->Setup->Advanced and that may help with convergence
problems.
For further information take a look at the Protel help/manual "Working with
simulations" and "Troubleshooting simulation problems".
For deeper information about spice simulation (and its problems) the Protel
help/manual is too "tight", you will have to study addional books about
that.
