icem fluent mesh with cyclic boundary condition

I am currently having a problem about my icem fluent mesh. I tried to run a 3d simulation of flow past a cylinder with cyclic boundary condition on the front and back surfaces. However, OpenFOAM always complains face matching problem of the patches with cyclic boundary condition.
Create polyMesh for time = 0
face 0 area does not match neighbour 4 by 71.4286% -- possible face ordering problem.
patch:FB my area:2.96875 neighbour area:1.40625 matching tolerance:0.001
Mesh face:104 vertices:4((0 -1.75 1) (0 -3 1) (3 -3 1) (1.75 -1.75 1))
Neighbour face:108 vertices:4((-0.5 -0.5 0) (0 -0.5 0) (0 -1.75 0) (-1.75 -1.75 0))
Rerun with cyclic debug flag set for more information.
From function cyclicPolyPatch::calcTransforms()
in file meshes/polyMesh/polyPatches/constraint/cyclic/cyclicPolyPatch.C at line 180.
It looks like there is a face ordering problem.
I have group the front and back faces in the same group. Furthermore, I extrude my 3d mesh from a 2d mesh to avoid conformal surface problem. However, there is no such problem with wall boundary for the fron and back surfaces.
Does anyone know a solution to the problem? or any other hex mesh tool I can use other than ICEM?
Thanks a lot.
