[AMBER] Segmentation fault when trying outputting MBAR data in vacuum

Dear AMBER users,

I have been having issues when running vacuum free energy simulations in pmemd (AMBER 2022). This only occurs when I add the flag igb=6 to my MDIN file, but as far as I understand, this is needed to obtain correct results. However, if I use igb=6 together with ifmbar=1, I get segmentation fault but I don’t when I set ifmbar=0.

I would like to get the correct MBAR output in the vacuum leg to keep the run consistent with the solvated leg, so it is highly preferable to keep ifmbar=1. Does anyone know what the correct set of MDIN parameters would be for running an MBAR calculation in vacuum? I am attaching a zip file containing a simple benzene~toluene perturbation and an MDIN file that segfaults unless one turns off ifmbar.

Any input would be highly appreciated.

Kind regards,
