carowjp is on a distinguished road

I am trying to create a new patch at runtime from interior faces that I can use with patchWave to calculate distances.

I looked at the utility createPatch for ideas. If I try to run createPatch using a face set (of internal faces) it returns this error:

Face 1 specified in set innerFaces is not an external face of the mesh.
This application can only repatch existing boundary faces.

    From function createPatch
    in file createPatch.C at line 725.

Any suggestions much welcomed!
