    Thanks for reporting this!

    I have gone through, cleaned up, and fixed some issues in the lid-driven cavity demo. I mistakenly believed that the CI system would have warned me if the demo stopped working, but in the tests the demos only ran through a setup phase, they were not run through the actual time loop (to make the automated tests relatively fast), so no assembly took place and no errors where apparent. Now, a collection of demos are run for one time step to catch this kind of problem. The fix and new test regime is in the merged PR #21.

    Please note: I did not get the exact same error as you got, also when I tested on Debian Buster. Researching this I found that FEniCS 2018.1 has a problem with SymPy >= 1.2. This issue is fixed in FEniCS 2019.1 which should be released any day now, but that may (??) have been the reason that the UFL error was different on your system?

    Please let me know if this fixes the problem. PR #21 shows the results I get with the updated demo. You should hopefully get the same.
