4 Bugs

The gmshToFoam utility in OpenFOAM-1.6-ext has some problems with preserving defined physical surfaces. Both OpenFOAM-2.1.x and OpenFOAM-1.6-ext versions of gmshToFoam do not preserve internal physical surfaces (needed for some applications). The following tarballs compile as gmshToFoam2 inside the user directory. They have the bugs removed.
