Actually, assuming you indeed have 2500 frames in each trajectory you
should have 2000 frames total based on your offset (2500/5 = 500, x4).
What does the 'INPUT TRAJECTORIES:' part of your output read? It
should be something like:

 0: [<filename>] is a <format>, Parm <topology name> (<box>) (reading X of N)
  Coordinate processing will occur on M frames.

In your output, what is each 'X of N', and what is 'M' equal to?
