the run is terminating as instructed:

try setting max_model_number to a larger value in your inlist(s).

In the terminal output file I've attached, MESA tries a few times with entropy relaxation and gives up instead of the usual timescale reduction to the minimum timestep. Does anyone know why this might be occurring?
