Hi,

Just as a check, I let wd_cool keep going as long as it could.  All was fine until the center temperature dropped below 1e6.  At that point we really do fall off the edge of the world in the current eos, and it gives up.  So it runs great for about 800 steps, then abruptly dies.  Here's the last good model:
