Under certain circumstances, e.g. volumes with holes, some tetrahedron elements do not align with adjacent tetrahedrons. An example is attached that demonstrates this error, including images that show the location of the edges that do not connect.

The file you sent meshes fine here will all the algorithms. Can you send the .msh file that you think is wrong?
