Please run the command below and post the result; it will provide some
information about what is going on (although it may not answer everything).
You can either run it in a linux shell (under bash) or paste it to a file
(e.g. ~/bin/Check, $WIENROOT/Check or $WIENROOT/Check_lapw), do a "chmod
a+x file" then just do "Check" (or whatever name you used).

grep -v -e "with 1.0" -e scheme -e CONTRIBUTION | \
