Summary0001712: Bad container resizings in viewFactorsGen.C
DescriptionThe container triSurfaceToAgglom is being resized with one element too short, s. patch file. This might lead to a crash if a ray hits the very last triangle of the detailed surface, which then could not be mapped to the correct coarse face.
Steps To ReproduceLook at the loop above "triSurfaceToAgglom.resize(localTriFaceI-1)". The counter localTriFaceI already tracks the correct size of the container. It is not needed to subtract 1 after the loop.

There is actually some second mistake in "viewFactorsPatches.resize(count--)", s. patch file. It does not lead to a wrong size, but to a potentially unexpected value of count. Fortunately, count is not (yet) being reused.
Additional InformationThe bug is there at least since 2.3 and is still there in dev.
TagsNo tags attached.

This seems somewhat similar to the issue reported in #1157:

Yes, in the best case #1157 is caused by a similar typo (though hard to find). In the maybe worst case #1157 is caused by inconsistencies from mesh generation.

This bug here generates segfaults even if #1157 was fixed and vice versa.
Hence I would regard it to be possibly similar, but in any case independent.
