Default Parabolic Velocity inlet profile error

I am trying to set up an FSI problem which uses a custom Parabolic inlet profile. I have followed the steps outlined in the Incompressible Laminar step tutorial and created an inlet profile file, however, when I run it with the specified inlet profile I get the error "requesting a negative iteration number for the restart file!!".
It runs absolutely fine with a uniform inlet profile though, I'm relatively new to SU2 so I'm having trouble trying to figure out what the error actually means.

Any insight on this problem would be much appreciated,

For multizone, files need a zone suffix (inletprofile_0.dat), for timedomain they need a further time suffix inletprofile_0_0000.dat
Possibly you are not restarting and there is a bug in the code, I will have a look, in the meantime you can try running 2 iterations without the inlet profile, and then restarting with the profile.

Edit: It was a bug ->
You can either use that branch or the dummy restart trick above.
