Thanks for the clarification.

Thanks a lot, my Wien2k version is the latest one.

Your explanation is perfectly clear. I think I understand now what
caused my confusion. IMHO there is a mistake in userguide on page 126,
Table 7.3: XC shortcut-switches. It shows that alternative to XC_MBJ is
EX_LDA EC_LDA VX_MBJ VC_MBJ.

So when I tried to use PBE energy for the first time, I took the long
notation for XC_MBJ from userguide and replaced LDA with PBE, except than I got 
an
error: 'VXCLM2 - Correlation-potential calculation not supported for'
- MBJ
So I removed VC_MBJ, however I forgot to replace it with VC_LDA, I got
some bogus results and that started my confussion.

Thanks for clearing this up.
Best regards
