Hello Bernhard,

yes, I think that is exactly what I did now, and it works like a charm! 
Thanks for your help, and for paving the way to solving this problem by 
putting up your FaceConduct2D example up on the Wiki! I have put my 
RadiativeHeatTransfer example up on the Wiki as well just now.

Best Regards,
