    nobraner, Your expressions all have two lower μ indices, which is incorrect. Would you like to raise one of them by inserting a gμν?

    Finally found the time to fix this. One of my biggest weaknesses is ignoring the upper/lower covariant derivative convention. I guess I always think of covariant derivatives as always being covariant.
