That is the equivalent of a segfault. reset_particle_force is the first check 
for errors after the asynchronous force calculation, so the segfault can 
happen anywhere during the force calculation, e.g. since a particle got a 
position like NaN or so - there are plenty of possibilities. Since the error 
seems to occur at different times, it is quite likely that your system is not 
properly set up and is unstable, which of course shows up much faster if you 
increase the number of particles. You might want to reduce the time steps or 
viscosities.

Many regards,
Axel
