problem when I import mesh with cyclic graduated BC

I tried to import a simple geometry (a simple block 10*10*10) created with Salomé.
In this geometry, the boundary faces
- normal to z-axis are named frontAndBack ;
- normal to x-axis are named fixedWalls;
- normal to y-axis are named inout;
In a first test, I carried out a hexa meshing with a simple grading : 1 cell in z-direction, 20 cells in the y-direction and 40 cells in the x-direction.
I import the mesh with the following command:
- frontAndBack empty;
- fixedWalls wall;
- inout cyclic;
Everything is ok and I can watch my wideframe in ParaView.
Now, I modify the mesh by using a edge graduation for the x-axis (ratio = 4). If I defined the boundary as previously I and tried to watch my wideframe (or start a calculation) I get the following error message:
--> FOAM FATAL ERROR: face 0 area does not match neighbour 40 by 119.999% -- possible face ordering problem. patch:inout my area:0.46026 neighbour area:0.115066 matching tolerance:0.001 Mesh face:3180 vertices:4((10 10 1) (10 10 0) (9.53974 10 0) (9.53974 10 1)) Neighbour face:3220 vertices:4((0 0 1) (0 0 0) (0.115066 0 0) (0.115066 0 1)) Rerun with cyclic debug flag set for more information. From function cyclicPolyPatch::calcTransforms() in file meshes/polyMesh/polyPatches/constraint/cyclic/cyclicPolyPatch.C at line 179. FOAM exiting
To be sure my mesh and geometry are correct, I modified the boundary file defining inout as patch. In that case I am able to visualize my mesh with graduated edge.
Have you ever encouter this problem ? Do think it is a bug within OpenFOAM ?
