Dear Jrme,

Amm, yes, of course, sorry, it was toward the end of a long day :)

Just one more question: What happens when the transition from one stage to
the next occurs? I would imagine that only the reaction coordinate increases
for one step, but the rest of the system stays minimized (since the last
frame of the previous stage is minimized).

Oh well, at least they won't see me miscounting the difference between -70
and 290 :)

Thank you for your help,
