Oh, thanks. However, I don't think I fully understand this... Also, as I
just wrote to Matt J, I now think that maybe my only solution to avoid
oscillations is to:

1) use a very small timestep
2) reformulate the problem (don't know how to do this)
3) maybe use regularization on the problematic rows, if this can be done
(this reduces the oscillations, but that's also ok)?

Maybe I should forget about it, unless some clever guy here has any
hints for me... That would be highly appreciated...

Thanks, Loren, anyway.
