I confirm that with the same input files for the same case
I succesfully completed the scf and the phonon calculation
at Gamma point for a structure of 58 atoms, on a parallel
system (SP6 at CINECA) with one restart in the middle
due to the maximum time limit allowed by the scheduler.

The restart procedure works with QuantumESPRESSO 4.05
but NOT with version 4.1, because every time one
tries to restart the phonon calculation (at least on that
architecture) the execution stops with the error

cannot open xml_recover file for writing

as commented before in this forum. I will post a bug notification
on the QE forge site and inform also the administrators of SP6.

Thanks, Cristian
