as I said before I would try on a small system with F, like HF with  
increasing the cutoff until the MD conserves the energy well enough  
(you don't need long trajectories, just like 100 steps).

A p function with exponent X is *much* more difficult to represent on  
a grid than an s function with the same exponent, so you need an  
higher cutoff
