no. such a test would *kill* performance.
it is up to the user, to choose reasonable
settings, so that this does not happen.

well, if you are missing interactions due to too infrequent pairlist rebuilds
to too small a cutoff for it, then you *do* miss those interactions. if this is
infrequent, however, you may not notice. whether this is a good or bad
thing, is a different discussion.
