Default Switching from transient to steadystate : crash

alf12 is on a distinguished road

I have run a case using pimpleFoam (transient, RANS solver), solution looks converged and steady state. So I have tried to run the same case using simpleFoam (steady state). For that I have copied the last time step of transient calculation and just changed what is needed to run simpleFoam, so only a few minor modifications.

The steady state case crashes immediatly. Is there any obvious reason for that ?
