I'm sorry for the late reply. I'm replying to ET as well to hear from
others about my short comments below.

I agree with you. But I'm not 100% sure myself whether I can ignore any
chance of dynamical instabilities owing to the round-off, even though it
would be extremely rare.

At least for this issue, I'm using public ET codes (mainly Turing version).

Not public. I guess that this vectorization issue would be reproducible in
any circumstances if the resolutions are sufficiently high. For example,
the resolution used here is dxmin=0.25 num_levels=6, and dtfac=0.4. I can
share with you a public EOS version.

I can make you an account on my machine to access the data. I will let you
know if I gather the data.
