yes, i understand that i can wrap everything into one cell but it  
would just be easier to check intermediate and final geometries if  
there were a way to have CP2K output geometries of both molecules in  
the same cell.  or, is there a visualization package that works well  
with CP2K?

BTW, everything stays in the parent cell when alpha=beta=gamma=90 deg,  
so i wonder why it's different when alpha=beta=90 deg, gamma=120 deg.
