Thank you,

No, I do not think that it is crystallographically wrong, it is just the way 
that sgroup chooses to put the lines

This way

.   .   .

  /  /

.   .   .

connecting diagonally

or this way

.   .   .

|  |

.   .   .
connecting vertically

both are correct

I agree with you -- it would be nice if 90 was kept although formally I believe 
it is crystallographically wrong. I have never tried to tweak the code as it is 
in C which I don't like much. Maybe someone who likes C can look.....

I want to see how Cu interacts with the TiO2 surface, so I construct with 
'supercell' an enlarged cell, with
SG 35 (C m m 2)
then I attach Cu and O on the surface in a way that I break the symmetry in the 
b direction
The cell is orthorhombic

CXY LATTICE,NONEQUIV.ATOMS: 21
MODE OF CALC=RELA unit=bohr
 11.187184 23.838706 23.838290 90.0 90.0 90.0

if I run initialize calculation and then sgroup the new cell changes to

CXZ LATTICE,NONEQUIV.ATOMS: 28 8 Cm
MODE OF CALC=RELA unit=bohr
 23.838706 33.712727 11.187184 90.0 90.0 135.000500

which is correct, but it is no longer orthogonal which is awkward, one angle 
changes from
90 to 135.0005
also the a, b, c => c, a, b

Also I cannot see the structure with XCrySDen, unless I change the 135.0005 
angle by little.

With the new structure and the old one I managed to make a new TiO2.struct with 
orthorhombic and can be seen with XCrySDen

It would be nice that sgroup would generate a structure with the orthorhombic 
symmetry
