Please if you have "RE_POSITION Moving by" messages in your output. It is not
clear yet whether or not there is indeed a bug here, or what is might be.
As I read the code, velocities should not be changed at nscm intervals.

Debugging this will require running *short* simulations, printing out
results at every step, and trying different values of nscm. Simulated
annealing is one area where ntt=1 is sometimes preferred, but ntt=3 should
work as well.
