[petsc-users] Fieldsplit schur applied on A00 of a fieldsplit schur

Hi all,
sorry for the cryptic title but this is a little complex.
Here is what I am doing:
I created a DMShell that gets four fields passed from a PetscSection.
Now I am doing this because I want to apply a schur complement to my problem.
In order to do so I pass the following arguments to my code:

-ksp_type gmres
-pc_type fieldsplit
-pc_fieldsplit_type schur
-pc_fieldsplit_schur_factorization_type full
-pc_fieldsplit_0_fields 2,3                    <--- This define A00 for my schur
-pc_fieldsplit_1_fields 0,1

Up to here everything works fine and as expected (I actually do a -ksp_view to make sure that everything makes sense).
Now things get tricky, I would like to compute A00^-1 using another schur decomposition so here are the commands I issue:

    -fieldsplit_0_ksp_type preonly
    -fieldsplit_0_pc_type fieldsplit
    -fieldsplit_0_pc_fieldsplit_type schur
    -fieldsplit_0_pc_fieldsplit_schur_factorization_type full
    -fieldsplit_0_pc_fieldsplit_0_fields 2
    -fieldsplit_0_pc_fieldsplit_1_fields 3

I am almost sure that the 4 first commands are correct, I am not however sure that the last two are understood by PETSc.
Actually I am worried that the DMShell that I created for the first level schur is not passed on the second level schur.
Here is the error message I get when I run my code:

Let me know if I'm doing something wrong or misunderstood something.
