I believe there is still an error when higher order restriction operators are used (which makes sense only for cell-centred simulations). In this case, ghost zones are synchronized, but boundary and symmetry conditions are not applied. This may lead to differences for simulations employing symmetries to refined regions.

Yes, it probably should.
