I am playing with immersedBoundary method in foam-extend. The test case is cylinderInChanelIcoIbFoam which uses icoIbFoam to simulates a 2D flow over a cylinder. It runs smoothly with original setups

However, when i change the boundary condition of inlet and outlet to cyclic, I have this error:
Reading field U

Calculating potential flow

Can't find nearest triSurface point for cell 1800, (-0.98 0.48 0.05)Hit data = 0 (1.35004e-316 1.35002e-316 1.34996e-316) -1

    From function immersedBoundaryFvPatch::makeIbPointsAndNormals() const
    in file immersedBoundaryFvPatch/immersedBoundaryFvPatch.C at line 1036.

FOAM aborting

Aborted (core dumped)
Do you have any idea what's going on with my setup?

I attached my case below. Just ./Allrun and you gonna see the error.
