Default postprocessing with sample in a cyclic case and multiregion fail

sebware is on a distinguished road

i had developed a well working postprocessing with sample in a case with 3 coupled regions.

now i have changed two boundarys to cyclic. Everything works fine, but if i try to use the same sampleDict i get errors.

i have tried sample from the of1.6ext version and from the of21 version as well.

Must i write a special entry in the sampleDict to handle cyclic cases ??

The of21 version gives up with the following error
Create mesh fluid for time = 0.4

No "neighbourPatch" provided.
Is your mesh uptodate with split cyclics?
Run foamUpgradeCyclics to convert mesh and fields to split cyclics.

file: ::sidePatches from line 31 to line 36.

    From function cyclicPolyPatch::cyclicPolyPatch
    const word& name,
    const dictionary& dict,
    const label index,
    const polyBoundaryMesh& bm
    in file meshes/polyMesh/polyPatches/constraint/cyclic/cyclicPolyPatch.C at line 681.

FOAM exiting
thanks for helping

best regards
