it's hard to say what the issue is without seeing the code. I suspect you
get more answers if you actually post your code. Please make sure it is
complete and easy to copy and past.

> Nevertheless, I may advance that my RHS is a system of 6 ODE (hamiltonian), these ODE call other functions (controls). These last functions (controls) are coded in a module box. Inside that box are some implicit functions in R1 (hence a newton algorithm is called) and there is also a switch - if a given condition is above a threshold the control box assumes one form, bellow that threshold another form is assumed. After all these calculations inside the control box it returns simply a vector of order 3.
