paraview crashes
Hello Foamers,

I'm trying to have a look at the results of damBreakPorousBaffle tutorial but paraveiw crashes when I load pressure and alpha fields. This doesn't happen for velocity U which is a volume vector field. For instance if I create U*alpha1 which is a vector field I can load it to Paraview with no problem. Below you can see the beginning part of the error message:

Attempt to cast type N4Foam5token8CompoundINS_4ListIdEEEE to type N4Foam5token8CompoundINS_4ListIdEEEE

From function dynamicCast<To>(From&)
in file /home/opencfd/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.1.0/src/OpenFOAM/lnInclude/typeInfo.H at line 93.

Has any one faced this problem before?

Any response is highly appreciated.

Hey there!
I am having the same problem, have you solved it?

It turns out it was not so difficult to solve.
