Dear Luca,

indeed, it sounds unphysical. You need to plot
this deformation density and see if it looks
correctly (as a pure pi-component without for example any signa 
mixing). I guess, that it
dosn't look correct since probably the plus(+) eigenvalue and minus (-) 
eigenvalue NOVCV's
do not match each other (in a sense of symmetry). Are your fragments 
occupied correctly
in a sense of aubau principle? (no gaps in occupations). I hope it 
helps. If not,
put somewhere the t21 files, I will take a look:)

best, Mariusz Mitoraj
