Conflict in parameters of unit cell after CELL_OPTIMIZATION

Hi,

I still don't really see anything very wrong with the setup (it is a bit 
inefficient, use smaller MAX_SCF in inner loop and FULL_ALL or 
FULL_SINGLE_INVERSE preconditioner).

The initial structure seems very bad - are your coordinates/cell params 
correct? Perhaps you converge to a different polymorph or a local minima?
