Default Capillary empty: works but if intially set to fill: crashes

mcfdma is on a distinguished road

I am working on electrospray (electrohydrodynamic).

Solver - modified interFoam (which includes electric equations)
OF 2.3.1
Processor - 24
2D axisymmetric model

I inject fluid into the capillary (with a given electric potential/voltage) and further downstream, a ground plate to generate electric field.

Since the experimental flow rate of the fluid flow is extremely slow, I am trying to fill the capillary with the fluid using setFields. However, the simulation does not run and crashes (after several hours and the residual is decreasing but not a single timestep created). This is not the case when the capillary is empty - works perfectly fine.

I have even tried changing my writeFormat from binary to ascii since I got a similar error.
Parallel error

Error message

[14] #0  Foam::error::printStack(Foam::Ostream&)--------------------------------------------------------------------------
A process has executed an operation involving a call to the
"fork()" system call to create a child process.  Open MPI is currently
operating in a condition that could result in memory corruption or
other system errors; your job may hang, crash, or produce silent
data corruption.  The use of fork() (or system() or other calls that
create child processes) is strongly discouraged.

The process that invoked fork was: **************************

If you are *absolutely sure* that your application will successfully
and correctly survive a call to fork(), you may disable this warning
by setting the mpi_warn_on_fork MCA parameter to 0.
