Hi, I am trying to convert

I am trying to convert a fluent .msh file to an OpenFOAM mesh. The mesh is for an entire aircraft and has around 40 million cells. When i run the conversion I get two errors:

*** glibc detected *** fluent3DMeshToFoam: double free or corruption (out): 0x00
0000007c8d9860 ***

*** glibc detected *** fluent3DMeshToFoam: free(): invalid next size (fast): 0x0

I have had a chat with some people at uni who seem to think it looks like a memory problem with the program. I dont know a lot about programming and not sure what the error could be.

Any ideas?

Thanks very much for any help.

This is when it destroys any s
This is when it destroys any static objects. (this is after the program has finished) Usually happens if you link in extra copies of source files containing a debug symbol. I just tried and do not have this problem with the stock 1.4.1.

The file will have been correctly converted by the time this error happens.
