refineMesh cannot find a face
I am periodically using refineMesh on a case with two pairs of cyclic patches. I am using cellSet and faceSet to ensure that if a cell on one cyclic patch is refined, the corresponding cell on the other patch is also refined. They should always match perfectly. This works well in the first pass, but not in the second. refineMesh throws:

--> FOAM Warning :
From function Foam::cellCuts::edgeVertexToFace(const label cellI, const label edgeI, const label vertI) const
in file meshCut/cellCuts/cellCuts.C at line 301
cellCuts : Cannot find face on cell 3281 that has both edge 448512 and vertex 186462
faces :

Is this related to the cyclic patches or is it something totally different?

How can I solve this problem?
