[Gmsh] 1D high-order meshing

Hi John,

 I attached a geo file (it's a channel with a bump on the bottom wall). The 
geometry does not come from a CAD software, but the bottom wall is represented 
by a spline. 

I ran gmsh with the following parameters:

gmsh -2 -order 7 -optimize_ho -clscale 1.0 -epslc1d 1.e-12 bump.geo -o 
test.msh

When you change order to 5 and clscale to 1.1, the mesh looks fine.

Best regards,

   Martin
