An error in MERCURY

I+C Inner moon collided with the central body.
I+O Inner moon collided with the outer moon.
I+M Inner moon collided with the middle moon.
M+O Middle moon collided with the outer moon.
A collision between the inner-most moon and the central star is a disturbingly common outcome in the simulations.
