Pressure distributions in potentialFoam

I'm a new user to OpenFoam and am currently trying to run some inviscid simulations using potentialFoam.
I've run the cylinder tutorial and also a 2D case with a NACA0012 aerofoil. However, while the velocity distributions for both these cases looked correct, the pressure distributions looked completely wrong, looking more like a distribution of velocity potential (when running potentialFoam -writep).
Has anyone else experienced this problem, and if so, did they ind a solution?

You're right -- "p" within the solver and as written out is simply the velocity potential. You'll need to calculate the static pressure on your own from the velocity field and the total pressure.
