Hi Dmitry,

The problem you hit is a test that was designed for regular QM
methods, and slipped through the cracks. DFTB does support d-orbitals.
To make sure your calculation completes, your best option is just
increase the size of MAX_VALENCE_ORBITALS in qmmm_module to 9, and it
should work.

However, notice that d-orbitals with DFTB have not been tested, so you
are advised to be very careful. Also, make sure to use the
trans-3d-0-1 parameter set from for Fe.
