[CP2K-user] [CP2K:10810] XC_HYB_MGGA_XC_WB97M_V functional in libxc

I switched to a different basis set, def2-QZVPP, and this one is working. 
However, SCF can not converge when I try to tighten the convergence 
criteria - it almost converges when suddenly energy increases by hundreds 
of au and the SCF can not converge/decrease to previous values anymore. I 
attach input and output files in case somebody had a suggestion what could 
be going on.

I will redo the calculation for looser convergence criteria, but I think it 
is still quite off from reference literature (wB97M-V paper).

Thank you very much.
Kind regards,
