Thank you for your answer,

regarding the SK-files used:

- in the case of fluorine I am using pbc-0-3 files

- in the case of cobalt, it seems to me that there is no
  properly tested sk-files set. For this reason I am using
  trans3d in my initial tests, even though I am not sure
  about their suitability for the systems I am interested.

Best regards,
