Dear Aiko,

The basis linearly dependent is a pain and I am not sure of a way round
that other than vary the basis set, have you tried it uncontracted i.e.


With regard to calcs what is the size of the system? I looks to me that  
the problem is an interger overflow. I.E MOLPRO has tried to write a
file greater than 2GB, the solution is to use lrarge file support, i'm
prety sure there is a patch, but it is standard in version 2002.

Good luck,
