The effect of the "B'' term in the interaction $-\chi Q(1)\cdot
Q(2)[1+B\vec{\tau}(1)\cdot \vec{\tau}(2)]$ was previously considered in the 0p shell (small space). It is now studied in a larger space which additionally includes $\Delta N=2$ excitations. When B is made sufficiently negative we still obtain for 10Be, even in the larger space, an unphysical collapse of some of the low-lying states so that their energies are less than the energy of the conventional J=0+ ground state. This effect, however, occurs for values of B considerably more negative than was the case in the smaller space. It is shown that the inclusion of an additional two-body spin-orbit interaction term prevents this unrealistic collapse in both the large and small spaces.
