InterMixingFoam - Gravity Currents (not working)

I'm trying to test the interMixingFoam solver when studing gravity currents. So I took the tutorial example but changing the initial alpha fields. The initial condition is a horizontal free surface, and two separated phases, with different densities (I attach the whole example).
I was expecting to see the gravity currents due the difference in density, but both liquid phases behave as they have the same properties.
What could it be wrong?

There's indeed a bug in interMixingFoam. The solvers incorrectly assigns the properties of phase 2 to phase 3, so both are identical, preventing the development of any density current.
I've posted the bug-fix in this thread:
