The documentation is wrong: unfortunately a check slipped in the code  
which requires a starting_magnetization to be specified even when the  
magnetization is constrained IF AND ONLY IF the constraint is specified  
with constrained_magnetization='total', fixed_magnetization(3)=XXX.

Workaround: use tot_magnetization instead. I.e. change:
