Default Boundary layer at corners

chubb87 is on a distinguished road

my mesh generated with cfMesh has the problem, that at corners the boundary layers from two patches overlap. This leads to small quadratic cells, which are then interpolated to one much bigger cell in the red region.

I would rather prefer the mesh to be as in the second picture. Does anyone know how this can be influenced? I tried to separate the two adjacent walls into different patches, but the result was the same.
