I am not sure what you mean by "Please describe the test you ran." Who?

Speaking for myself, I compute PMF's for rotating dihedral angles all
the time and my magnitudes are correct, with the units as stated (I
use our own WHAM implementation, so I can't vouch for whatever you're
using). Maybe you can elaborate? (To double-check, the units are
