You can try running the equilibration on just one cpu to see if that
changes things. You might see visually if your system appears to be

Setting ntt=2 without setting vrand is probably dangerous. I would
suggest ntt=3 for equilibration. But it's not clear that this is
related to your problem or not.

What happens after the vlimit messages? It could be that you have a
very weird stating configuration, and that a run with real temperature
equilibration would help.
