## pimpleFoam in OF1612 shows same time step twice in log file

Hi,

I recently installed OF1612 on my Uni's cluster (Scientific Linux 6.9 (Carbon)) without sudo right. I have been testing it using a wavy channel flow case. I found out if I set the timePrecision and writePrecision to 6, same time step will appear twice in the log file and the probed data in postProcessing:

In log file:

and in probed data:

```

```

Changing the timePrecision and writePrecision from 6 to 7 solves the problem. But I think there is a bug as the precision should be increased automatically if the program senses above problem. This is what OF230 did, in a similar case in OF230 (the precisions were 6 as well), the log file showed following and the time step were displayed correctly:

```
--> FOAM Warning :
From function Time::operator++()
in file db/Time/Time.C at line 1055
Increased the timePrecision from 6 to 7 to distinguish between timeNames at time 10.67
```

However, I think there is also a bug in OF230, because although OF230 automatically increase the precision in log file, it's probed data still show the same time steps twice.

The above issues can be reproduced.

I have discussed above problem in cfd-online forum and people thought it may be a bug. The link of the thread is: https://www.cfd-online.com/Forums/openfoam-bugs/197814-pimplefoam-of1612-shows-same-time-step-twice-log-file.html

Please can you have an investigation and solve the problem.

Kind regards, Yeru
