[molpro-user] Potential Energy Surface Diabatization

We are attempting to reproduce Figures 2 and 3 of http://dx.doi.org/10.1063/1.479214 showing the CASSCF and MRCI potential energy surfaces (PESs) of H2S.  Our input files are closely based on the h2s_diab1 example.  The multi and adiabatic MRCI PES match the literature well.  However, the diabatic MRCI calculations do not match the paper and produce inconsistent results.  With the script provided below, we obtain a conical intersection at 2.7 a0 with the MRCI calculation of the diabatized PES.  Figure 2 of the included paper shows a lack of intersection between the diabatic surfaces.  Further, by reversing the order in which we take the non-fixed H-S bond length values we obtain a conic intersection at ~3.5 a0.

Similar issues arise with recreating Figure 3 of PES versus bond angle.  Starting with small bond angles produces a conical intersection at ~110 degrees; starting with large bond angles has a conical intersection at ~95 degrees, relatively close to the literature.

How should we fix this issue and consistently produce reliable diabatized MRCI surfaces?
