[QE-users] thermo_pw crashes with "can't open a connected unit"

The error seems to be related to lack of bfgs ionic convergence for each structure. Several structures goes through 20 steps but do not reach convergence. The remaining ones go through 0 bfgs steps.
So I changed nstep in set_thermo_work_todo.f90 from 20 to 50. Now what happens is that the first structure converges in say 25 steps but the other structures go through 0 bfgs steps. They remain unconverged even though for each of them nstep should be 50.
