The problem with that one .ali file is the nature of the loops you select/create. You have to really scrutinize that alignment, making sure that one-residue gap insertion there is what really makes that alignment better then some other possible arrangement.
As for the random seed: I don't think it makes any difference. Andrej might be able to add something about this?

i started the job with SET GAP_EXTENSION = 0 0 yesterday with both alignments and one of the jobs has crashed againat the 100th model as well, the other job is still running 450+models. The top and pir filesof the job that crashed are attached.
I will start 10 jobs with each generating 125 models. To see if in every run the 100th model crashes. As soon as i have results I let you know. One question about the seed, is it wise to take this randomly between -50000 and -2 like -44656, -35435, -9835, - 15684, -378 ... or is it oke to take in order like -32768, - 16384, - 8192, -4096, -2048...
Thanks in advance
