The rotational potential used in eqn. (5) of the article for the qualitative characterization of the libration contains the error made in Kiljunen et al. (DOI: 10.1039/b315149b, Additions and Corrections). However, no qualitative changes on the important aspects of zero-point energies and librational structure take place and therefore the concluding remarks remain valid. The corrected potential surface is more repulsive for the molecular rotation and the barrier height at 5 K increases from 88 cm1 to 93 cm1. The temperature effect at 46 K has the same trend as before but is significantly weakened according to the revised correlation diagram (Fig. 7) given below.
