Using B97M-V functional from trunk version of LIBXC in CP2K simulation janos... at

Dear Luis,

Have you succeed to perform correct B97M-V calculation with cp2k?
Could you provide a some input files (&XC ...&END XC, pseudo and basis set 
combination) that reasonably give back the results of other implementations 
(eg QCHEM)?
