[Dune] Performace of ISTL

Hallo,

I do not totally understand your code, but it seems to me that you
solve different systems with trilinos and istl:

- You seem to have 3 levels of recursiveness in your ISTL vectors
  (like in BlockVector<BlockVector<FieldVector<double,1> > >, but when
  copying it to Trilinos you simply disregard the first level and just 
  copy vector[1]. Therefore it seems like you only solve a part of
  DUNE problem in Trilinos
- After the computation you copy your solution back to ISTL and use it
  as an initial guess. Therefore your initial defect is already much
  smaller than the one you had with Trilinos.
  You should really use the same initial guess for both solvers.

                               ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Here you diregard the first level of the hierarchy.

why do you copy it back?

Here you give dune all levels of the hierarchy and do not disregard
the first recusion level.
