Thank you Jonathan. I thought it was a harmless option.

It is indeed working now.

So we added an option to pw2wannier90 to write them out as formatted. The above line tells Wannier90 to read UNK as formatted (you can see that the UNK files in example01 are indeed regular ascii files). In regular runs pw2wannier90 will write the UNK as unformatted - hence you don't need the above line (ie wfvn_formatted=.false. is default)
