Please start your program under gdb and check for which matrix entries
this happens. AFAIK the only matrix entries expected here is the
(0,0) entry of each diagonal block. That should be there right?

That looks distributed to me. Each process has about 16 unknowns. But
maybe I misunderstood you?

You are aware that with the default settings (coarsenTarget=2000) no
coarsening takes place here and the algorithm will simply gather the
matrix on process and solve directly. Which means more work the more
processes you employ.
