Guanglei: does your program pass the parallel tests? From the above messages
it looks (?) like the "md10.r" file is being read as unit 8, which I think
is for a prmtop file; but the name looks like a coordinate or restart file.
Is there any chance you just have the command line arguments messed up?
Double check the file assignments listed at the top of the output file.

(This is obviously just a guess, but might be worth checking.)
