Jiakun, do you mean that the mixing regions turn out different if you
choose do_mb = .true. or do_mb = .false.? Those are two different physical
situations, and if the star interacts with the companion or not depending
on the presence of magnetic braking you will get very different results.
Even before they interact you could get some very minor differences, as
timesteps are also controlled depending on how the orbital angular momentum

If there are differences you get right from the beggining, with every other
parameter being the same, then there you would have something strange going
