Your Jacobian may be incorrect, try running with -snes_mf_operator -pc_type
lu -ksp_monitor. The linear solves should converge in 1 iteration. You can
also try -mat_mffd_type ds if the residual is ill-conditioned.

If you can make the problem small, use -snes_type test to check the
correctness of the Jacobian directly and -snes_test_display to show how the
