Group scheme C kernels fail in complext tests
Found this while trying to run https://gerrit.gromacs.org/#/c/9052/ on the 2019 regression tests30803 Thread 15:

TODO: try to use 2019 with all SIMD support turned off by environment variable
#3 Updated by Mark Abraham 6 months ago
You can't turn off SIMD support with an environment variable. You can force the use of C-only kernels, or the use of the generic kernel. The point of this is to set the baseline for that the generic kernel works, thus whether https://gerrit.gromacs.org/#/c/9052/ is a reasonable idea.

I misunderstood GMX_DISABLE_SIMD_KERNELS then, sorry.
I just ran the 2019 complex/urea test with the head of release-2019 and export GMX_DISABLE_SIMD_KERNELS=1, log attached.
No errors where encountered, so I guess the issue is somewhere else.
