Red face Cannot find 'value' entry on patch 'XX' (when using reconstructpar)

Hi Foamers,

I am using Openfoam-2.2.x to run simple 2D reacting flow.

The case works completely fine when run in series. the problem arises when I run the case in parallel. The calculation is completed fine, but when i reconstruct the mesh from the processors, I get this error
Cannot find 'value' entry on patch wallOutside of field hs_1 in file "/dir/ location/aaf1-cphi04-sstep-FRC/processor0/0.0000010000/hs_1"
which is required to set the values of the generic patch field.
(Actual type gradientEnergy)

Please add the 'value' entry to the write function of the user-defined boundary-condition
Upon investigating the hs_1 file on the patch wallOutside the field is written in the form as:
type gradientEnergy;
gradient nonuniform 0();

If I change this to the usual like other fields (type and value instead of type and gradient), I am able to reconstruct. However, this poses a problem when I re-run the case for the next time steps with the modified field files

Please advice me how to address this problem. Any help is sincerely appreciated
