Using a custom blockMesh decomposition with Snappy
Has anyone successfully meshed using a custom decomposed blockMesh?

The custom decomposition works fine but the snappyhexmesh fails with the following for all processors.


[0] cannot find file
[0] file: /processor0/1/cellDist at line 0.
[0]    From function regIOobject::readStream()
[0]    in file db/regIOobject/regIOobjectRead.C at line 73.
FOAM parallel run exiting

Copying the cellDist file to the location is of no use as it will simply look for /processor0/2/cellDist instead. I assumed it was a bug but it has not been fixed in the last 3 releases. Does anybody have any solutions?
