[Gmsh] Problem with "Periodic Surface" defined using splines.

Dear all,

I have managed to solve my problem - I sliced up the spline defining the 
periodic planar surface in two parts and there is no problem any more. 
It seems that Periodic Surface has troubles, if it has been defined 
using two lines only.
