Dear Emma

The hills in WT_MTD are defined in a different way and to reconstruct the 
potential the inverse of delta_t is needed. 
In a standard MTD this parameter is not used. Hence, the potential that has 
been already generated cannot be correctly  taken into account in a MTD run 
restarting from WT_MTD. 
It should be easier to keep on running with WT_MTD but attenuating the 
effects of the temperature on the hills' size.
