Default Solution diverges because of kinematic viscosity value

Hello everyone!

I'm currently trying to simulate the turbulent flow over a flat plate (2D) with the solver simpleFoam. I've been doing some simulations without problem until I find that the kinematic viscosity value that I specified in the transportProperties file wasn't the right one. So I changed it to a value of 1e-6 (liquid water) and now the solution diverges...
Anyone know what is the problem here ?
