[CP2K:130] GAPW and GTH

Hi Harald

there is an unsolved problem with GAPW: depending on the
basis sets involved, results are very dependent on the
EPS_FIT variable. In you case you can set EPS_FIT to
10^-2 to get reasonable results. Also MD looks much better.

The problem is related to the split of the primitive functions
into hard and soft sets. Changing EPS_FIT moves primitives
from one set to the other. In prinicple this should affect
the total energy only slightly as we trade one source of
errors with another.
I will pu this problem very high on my "to be investigated"
list.

best regards

Juerg
