Dear All,

By now I was successfully loading XTC trajectory file containing 1500
frames to VMD. Now as the simulation is still running and additional 500 ns
were generated When trying to load the updated trajectory file containing
2000 frames VMD either crashes after loading some 1600 frames (if all the
atoms are visible) or just stops randomly after loading 1623 ((the number
can be different at different load attempts) frames (this is when only a
selection like "resid 1" is active).

Why I am basically sure that XTC file is correct is because when I try to
load the same trajectory file with Stride 10, VMD then loads exactly 200

The XTC is generated on 64 bit Linux system and VMD is running on 64 bit
Windows 7 with 12 GB of RAM, so memory is not a problem.

The system size is ~74000 atoms.

Does someone have any idea how to resolve this?

Thanks a lot for any help.
