Can you specify what is the "restart problem". Does the program crash ? Does 
it print out an error message ? Does it restart from scratch instead of 
restarting from file ?
I need some more information to understand where is the problem because I'm 
working with the same version and I don't have any restart problem.
If it is true that you have to explicitly add the startingwfc and startingpot 
keywords, this means that there is a bug somewhere, highlighted by your input 
file and not by mine.
