In common with a fair number of other programs, when you run the script to 
stop MD it doesn't stop immediately, sometimes it takes a second or so.  You 
need to wait for all MD processes to stop (or wait a couple of seconds) and 
*then* start it.

This has been mentioned before and if you trawl the list archive you'll find 
the details eventually.
