Calculations of shell correction energies by the temperature smearing method for realistic single particle level schemes of finite depth potentials are described and discussed. It is found that the method provides unique values of the shell correction energies for the various shapes relevant in the fission of actinide nuclei including those shapes where breakdown of the usual Gaussian energy smearing procedure was observed.
