  Hi Josiah, Evan,

  Thank you so much for your advice!

A possible workaround is to turn off the plot windows (with the

  You are right. The way my inlist_pgstar is structured, setting

  Grid1_win_flag = .false.

  has been enough.

  This is precisely what I was thinking about when I wrote my email. I hope
anyone can figure this out!
