I'm interested in being able to dump a frame for postprocessing while the simulation is running, outside the predefined "write interval" in the config. Is that possible at all?

Solution one: Change your writeInterval so it writes a save as soon as possible and then change again to your larger timestep.

Solution two: Use stopAt writeNow; [Link]. This stops the simulation and writes a timestep. You will have to restart the simulation afterwards.
