Hello,
I'm rather new to Openfoam and trying to run the propellor tutorial.
An error occurs while running the Allrun script:

in log.createBaffles


Code:
Converting faces on zone "innerCylinderSmall" into baffles.

Found 22416 faces on zone "innerCylinderSmall"

Using master patch AMI1 at index 7
Using slave patch AMI2 at index 8
Not converting faces on non-coupled patches.

Reading geometric fields

Reading volScalarField p
Reading volScalarField nut
Reading volScalarField k
Reading volScalarField epsilon
Reading volVectorField U


--> FOAM FATAL ERROR:
Problem : Patch AMI1 starts at 1756182
Current face counter at 1756183
Are patches in incremental order?

    From function polyTopoChange::polyTopoChange(const polyMesh& mesh, const bool strict)
    in file polyTopoChange/polyTopoChange/polyTopoChange.C at line 2459.

In log.snappyHexMesh I find

Code:
Edge intersection testing:
    Number of edges             : 1756183
    Number of edges to retest   : 57
    Number of intersected edges : 75181
Snapped mesh : cells:568602  faces:1756183  points:625033
and in system/changeDictionaryDict I see

Code:
AMI1
        {
            type            cyclicAMI;
            nFaces          0;
            startFace       1756182;
            neighbourPatch  AMI2;
            transform       noOrdering;
            surface
            ...
        AMI2
        {
            type            cyclicAMI;
            nFaces          0;
            startFace       1756182;
            neighbourPatch  AMI1;
            transform       noOrdering;
            surface

sorry, that was to early, the solution worked not really

but I found, that it really might be a bug in the tutorial

You can try the latest version. I had a lot of experience on this issue. I have tried to run the propeller tutorial by using OpenFOAM 2.1.1 on Fedora, but it diverge at t=0.02s. Then I tried the latest version of OpenFOAM --- it works!
