[Ipopt] infeasible solution?

can you send the Ipopt log?
It's hard to believe that the constraint violation is exactly 0.

I would think that it reports convergence to a point of local 
infeasibility, if it gets to a point in which the constraint violation 
is above the feasibility tolerance ("tol", in the simplest case) and it 
doesn't see a direction in which it can reduce the infeasibility.
For a feasible convex NLP, this should not happen usually.
