A strange HF energy of -1357 appears for Nickel atom with ANO-RCC, while it should be -1520.

Just got an energy of -1518.8

Total DFT energy = -1518.847822293797

the bug is located
It appears that the bug goes from Gaussian's routine for basis orthogonalization. NoBasisTransform option solves the problem, but significantly increases the job time:

Surprisingly, for gold all seems to be OK. Orthogonalization routine leaves only 168 of 177 basis functions as it does for nickel, but the total energy do not change.

So I think some kind of linear dependency problems do occur in the ANO-RCC basis set.

I was wrong. Rev.D01 does not reproduce the bug. All is OK with the basis set. Sorry for the inconvenience.
