Dear Jérôme,

I changed my code to use enable(f_ag_fit_gradients) and it seems I get

the correct gradients! Thanks a lot!

By the way, I have seen that the constructor of colvar::rmsd and

colvar::eigenvector uses disable(f_ag_fit_gradients), and that's why I

also disable it in my class constructor. Why is the feature disabled in

these cases?

Best regards,

Haochuan Chen
