Setting iwrap=1 appears to have solved the problem.

Thanks a lot!

Search for "****" in your restart files; this arises in long simulations
because the system has drifted to a location too large to put into the fixed
format of the restart file.

This usually works: start from the last good restart file, and set iwrap=1.
That should keep the system in the primary unit cell and avoid the problem.

Developers: can someone please look into why we turned off binary restart
files? Can we turn it back on again?...thx.
