Do you know what the density should be? Is it ever close to being correct?

Are you saying this because there are "vlimit" error messages? Or is it
obvious to you for some other reason? Can you look at what these system
is doing when the first vlimit messages occur?

Suggestions: 7 Ang. is a pretty short cutoff; try 9 to be safer. Run some
shorter simulations, stop right before bad things happen (density drops)
and see if anything looks funny.

...good luck...dac
