By the way, there's one thing bewildering me now.
*All* the signs I had before were wrong, possibly, because if I remember
correctly, in the .xvg table one has to put *minus* the derivative, and
for a repulsion term, this is expected to be a *positive* value (the
function will be monotonous decrescent).

Yet rtab14.xvg gives me *negative* values there.

Is the convention of rtab and of the tables different?
