Dear Juerg,

Thank you for taking care of this. I just checked out the updated 
wB97X-V.inp from cp2k trunk, and it seems the parameters for 
SCALE_LONGRANGE and SCALE_COULOMB are reversed in this version. For this 
functional, SCALE_COULOMB should be 0.167 and SCALE_LONGRANGE should be 
0.833. Would you mind fixing it again?

Thanks a lot,
