[Pw_forum] HSE Screening Parameter

With a 24x24x24 grid and a huge 120 Ry cutoff the code likely goes out of
memory (it needs a bunch of wavefunctions in real space) and stops before
starting to compute the exact exchange contribution, so what you get is
just the initial scf loop with PBE. There are examples in PW/tests for HSE
(hse-si???.in) that you can easily modify and quickly run, showing that HSE
results do actually depend upon the value of screening_parameter. Your
input stops immediately because stresses are not implemented with hybrid
functionals (forces are, AFAIK).
