yes, it's true that qmmm2/crambin/Run.crambin_divcon fails, my crambin_divcon.out file is attached

yes, all of the other tests in "make test.sander.DIVCON" passed, divcon_test.log is attached

No, not all antechamber tests had passed, such as ash, sustiva, guanine_amber. But they exactly showed minor diffs in charges.

ALL_TEST_FAILURES.diff and ALL_TEST.log are attached.
