Details - In the UGMessageBuffer implementations for the new codim 1 communication support in UGGrid, face entities are generated by calling element.subEntity() and passed on to the DataHandle to determine the size of the communication buffer. Unfortunately, subEntity() does not (as the name suggests) return an entity, but an EntityPointer, which needs to be dereferenced before passing it to the DataHandle, as that does in turn expect an Entity reference.

The attached patch fixes the problem.

PS: I hadn't yet thought about that counter-intuitive behavior of subEntity(), but I think this problem makes another good argument for ref-counted, copyable Entity handle objects.

One or more files have been attached.
