I'm coming in late here, but want to make a note. The last frame of a
trajectory for a given run does *not* correspond to the restart file created
from that same run. The coordinates in the restart file are actually one time
step ahead of the last printed energy and of the last trajectory snapshot that
is saved. So they should be slightly (not significantly) different.
