thank you. I had again a look it at, and ADC as well (he
knows better than anybody else phonon restarting). It seems
to work (unless the file is corrupted, which occasionally
happens, especially if stopping execution with control-C
as I was doing), also in parallel execution.

I had the "xml error" a few days ago and didn't understand why;
now I cannot reproduce it any longer. The directory structure
has changed (after my insistance on not overwriting data from
self-consistency) but the restart mechanism was changed
accordingly. Maybe it happens in some specific cases, but it is
hard to say until one finds which specific cases
