i am using snappyHexMEsh to mesh a complex geometry. I am doing some test, varying the number of cells of the backgroud mesh, to see which discretization is better for my simulation. In same cases, when the meshing process is finished, checkMesh returns a nonManifoldPoints warning like the one below

I am using OF 2.1.0, but i have also tried 1.7.1 and got the same error.
