I'm trying to optimize the bulk alpha-uranium unit cell in pspw. When I use the symmetry input Cmcm, after one step I get the error
sym_geom_project: sym_center_map is inconsistent with requested accuracy        1
 current input line :
There is an error in the input file
(rank:31 hostname:ember-cmp1 pid:144153):ARMCI DASSERT fail. armci.c:ARMCI_Error():260 cond:0
Last System Error Message from Task 31:: Invalid argument

My input file follows. The build is NCSA-supplied. Does anyone have an idea why the geometry (or whatever it is) makes it choke?

This also works for me. It looks like NCSA didn't compile nwchem correctly. I don't have have an ncsa account. Probably the best thing to do is have NCSA contact us directly, or you might consider compiling the code yourself.
