The newer one works just fine if it's told the right legacy units at 
compile time. The mistake is in configuring HepMC with MEV/MM when your 
legacy files are actually in GEV/MM.

I guess some other people in ATLAS actually do have HepMC files in 
MEV/MM lying around, again only implicitly assumed. This mess is only 
solved by the newer HepMC's 'U' line, which is why I would strongly 
recommend to move to it as soon as you can.

See you,
