Exactly how are you starting the pmemd.MPI run? There is not supposed
to be any difference between the two, which is why I am looking for
other things that might be wrong.

Also, which is the result of typing 'file GaMD_Parkin-eqNPT4.rst'?

Finally, are these indeed gamd runs? There might be something specific
to that option, but I don't have any experience there.
