Some possible comments:

1. Do you need really high restraints? Restraining every atom in a
bunch of residues with a weight of 10 should prevent motions larger than
about 0.1 -- do you really need things tighter than this?

2. More likely related to the problem: using restraints in conjunction
with constant pressure can be problematic. Be sure to check if you are
seeing any significant volume changes, especially when things go bad.
Can you try a constant volume (test) run to see if the problem goes

3. Visualization of what is going on when things go south is often very
