immortality is on a distinguished road
its a part of nutkWallFunctionFvPatchScalarField that apparently wanted to calculate

forAll(mutw, faceI)
        label faceCellI = patch().faceCells()[faceI];

        scalar yPlus =

        if (yPlus > yPlusLam_)
            mutw[faceI] = muw[faceI]*(yPlus*kappa_/log(E_*yPlus) - 1);
that is obviously yStar not yPlus.
has anyone any description for this?
