Hi Ralf, Thanks a lot for the quick reply! I will follow up on it, because if I
understand correctly, if this problem were to occur while I am using the
software, it would not raise any flags or warnings, just output incorrect
results. I'm not really comfortable using the library knowing that sometimes
eigenvector computations are way off...

If I find any solutions, I will follow up on this post.
