Default dynamic_cast and lookupObject

kev4573 is on a distinguished road
I am having trouble compiling a custon dynamicFvMesh library. I've taken what is essentially the mixerGgiFvMesh and added these lines to it

121     word field("p");
123     const volScalarField& p = lookupObject<volScalarField>(field);
And get a compiler error like this.. I've seen lookups like this in other classes derived from dynamicFvMesh and they compile just fine.

Any help is appreciated
