I presume that refmac also uses a mask, and Babinet only refers to the
that it calculates for higher density inside the protein mask, then adds
degrees to the phases to invert it (or optimizes a negative coefficient
use in combining). The result should be identical if the atomic radius
the mask, the solvent density, and solvent B-factor are the same. 

Since CNS allows one to fix these 3 parameters, it should be possible to
narrow down the contradiction if you can take the values used by refmac,
put them into CNS, and calculate FPART.

(My apologies if this is a gross oversimplification of the process)
