Dear Paolo,

Sorry to resurrect this after a long time.

This problem is innocuous but annoying nonetheless. I am using QE to
relax structures generated by USPEX. For around five percent of the
structures, I get this error. When this error happens, pw.x exits by
only printing atomic positions but not the cell parameters. This gives
problems to USPEX.

I tried to find which call to output_tau is responsible for this, to
no avail. I'd greatly appreciate if someone can point me to a
modification that will make the code output both the cell_parameters
and atomic_positions during exit after this error.
