Converge first with a lower temperature (and relevant compression), do rm
*.bro* and increase the temperature in case.in2. Increase the upper energy
bound in case.in1 so it is at least 6 times |TS| above the T=0 Fermi energy
(you might need more).

And...check the literature to see if PBE or similar is valid at these
temperatures, it may be but I am not sure.
