Dear all, i'm facing either very serious lack in my theory background or compilation/nwchem problem. I did several calculations and just recently i noticed very strange thing (i checked three different calculations)  see part of my output below:
Total DFT energy = 1144.144378448133
One electron energy = 5654.477100400897
Coulomb energy = 2607.095668751906
ExchangeCorr. energy = 156.929943044225
Nuclear repulsion energy = 2058.598637126281
Numeric. integr. density = 178.000323079243
when you sum all the energies you get different number (?1145.7127...) than the one reported in Total DFT energy.
i've got this in all three calculations (probably all of them). Also, the difference in reported and "summed" energy is always different, approximately ~1.2 to 1.7 Hartrees. This is the input corresponding to the upper energies:

I really hope that i'm missing something. Thank you very much for help.

i forgot to mention, that i checked results obtained on two different clusters, version 6.6 on both of them, but compiled independently on each other, by different person, with delay of ~6 months.

The confusion is due to the solutesolvent interaction energy not being written explicitly in the output, i.e. the total energy is correct, you are just missing an energy component in the output.
The patch is available at

that patch is new, right? also, i'm not sure, but in the COSMO part of the output i didn't attach originally is:
Total DFT energy = 1144.144378448133
One electron energy = 5654.477100400897
Coulomb energy = 2607.095668751906
ExchangeCorr. energy = 156.929943044225
Nuclear repulsion energy = 2058.598637126281
Numeric. integr. density = 178.000323079243
Total iterative time = 76.1s
COSMO solvation results

gas phase energy = 1144.1300273697
sol phase energy = 1144.1443784481
(electrostatic) solvation energy = 0.0143510784 ( 9.01 kcal/mol)
DFT Final Molecular Orbital Analysis
So I would assume that solvation energy is the solutesolvent interaction energy that you mentioned, isn't it? If so, than this energy is much smaller  only 0.01 Hartree, whereas the difference was bigger than 1 Hartree.
Of course, I'll apply the patch and try the calculation again.

Yes, the patch is new, created this morning in response to your post.
The listed solvation energy is simply the difference in energy between the gas phase result and the solution phase result and not the solutesolvent interaction energy to which I was referring.
