What do you mean by the "same input files"? Maybe you should post the
commands you gave to LEaP: it is unfortunately easy to make mistakes in
setting up non-default water models.

Also, what is it that led to you think the problem involved the non-bonded
cutoff? Changing that to a smaller value is probably not a good idea. I
would guess that you still need to find to real origin of your problems.
