The case.inm you have is fine for bulk, dangerous for a surface. Change to
BROYD 0.0 YES (BROYD/PRATT, extra charge (+1 for additional e), norm)
0.10 mixing FACTOR for BROYD/PRATT scheme
0.05 1.00 PW and CLM-scaling factors
and check :PLA and :DIRB for the angle.
Also, I suggest you use something more like
run_lapw -cc 0.025 -ec 0.025 -in1orig
run_lapw -cc XXX -ec XXX -in1new 1 -NI
(XXX whatever you want). Do not use -in1new 3 from scratch, it will
give exactly the sort of instabilities you are seeing.
