HI - I am running Gadget2 on a 32 node machine. Works well for more than 10,000 steps, then dt goes to zero with no complaints from the program so the run continues for some time with no progress. DONOTSTOP is not implemented. Softenings are good. TreeAllocFactor boosted, etc, but no go. The gravity calculation has extreme density ranges.

Restarting shows a possible problem (Nf=0 below):
Step= 9 t= 1.55115 dt= 0.000128937
