First of all, I want to thank your for your great dedication to the 
development of a powerful OS-FEM-Suite!

When evaluation the total field-energy in an axi-symmetrical model  I 
stumbled across the phenomenon that the result is too low by the 2*pi. I 
verified this behaviour by integrating the constant 1 over a cylindrical 
Volume with the dimensions D=10 mm and L=10 mm.
The result yields 0.5e-7 (= Rm * D * L, Rm=D/2), while it should be 

I included an example project, which is mainly an adaptation of your 
magnetostatic example files.
Name of cylindrical Volume: Arm - Armature
Relevent lines:
debug.geo: 5-9, 31-42
debug.pro: 23, 116
Mag-2D-AZ-Debug.pro: 174

Please let me know, if this is not a Bug, but an error on my side!
