Dear Andrea,
when you restart a calculation the charge density should be read from file and 
the starting_magnetization keyword should not be used so that you do not 
loose any information by setting that keywork (but is needed if the file with 
the old charge density is not there). Let me know if you have any evidence 
that things are going different.
