Q-grid not compatible

Dear developers:
When using the Yambopy to generate the ndb.elph_gkkp* files of Si, I found a problem. using 6*6*6 k-points and 3*3*3 q-points (qe6.1, yambo4.2.1) to generate a uniform q-grid, the q-grid not compatible, shown as follows:
___ __ _____ __ __ _____ _____
| Y || _ || Y || _ \ | _ |
| | ||. | ||. ||. | / |. | |
\_ _/ |. _ ||.\_/ ||. _ \ |. | |
|: | |: | ||: | ||: | \|: | |
|::| |:.|:.||:.|:.||::. /|::. |
`--" `-- --"`-- --"`-----" `-----"

and when using a random q-point sampling, the problem still exist. But, when using 2*2*2 k-points and 2*2*2 q-points (qe6.1, yambo4.2.1), the Q-grid is compatible.
Is there anything wrong?

Bests!
