Default Interpreting cyclic BC

Dear Foamers,

I am fairly new to OF and I'm using v6 to simulate a the channel395 case which has cyclic BC in x,z directions. After the simulation run, when I look at the results using "Point Data" in Paraview, I see that the patches where cyclic BCs are applied do not have identical field values. For example, the first point along x axis [say, on the left edge of the box at any given (y0,z0)] and the last point along the same axis [i.e. on the right edge of the box at the same (y0,z0)] do not have identical field values. Shouldn't they be identical? Am I doing something wrong in interpreting the results? Can someone please help me?

Thanks in advance!
