Dear all,

I'm trying to solve a rather simple 2D flow problem. Solving seems to go well, but when I attempt to view the solution in ParaView, or to run UComponents or something, a fatal error occurs and FOAM exits: FOAM FATAL IO ERROR : size 10000 is not equal to the given value of 1000 etc. (something in the internal field). Can anyone tell me what this error message means?

Maybe you have some files from a previous simulation (with 10000 cells?) hanging around?
