this page just lists where you can look for the source code that raised a 
certain background error. The page does not suggest to replace files. 
Normally, however, the error messages should be sufficient to understand the 
problem without looking into the code.

In your case, as the message says, a bond broke, i.e. you were using for 
example a FENE-bond and extended it beyond its cutoff. That happens if you do 
not equilibrate your chains carefully enough.
