I will see about sending you a patch to ex9 demonstrating SUPG for a scalar problem.  John is right, for systems it gets a little too complicated for an example...

Interesting.  I can see about adding you to the list, if you want?  Or
is it just an issue with your domain?

AFAIK, upwind differencing *adds* numerical diffusion, to improve stability.

I have some code which uses SUPG but it's not simple enough to be an
example.  Nothing using simple upwinding though.  Was this in 1D, 2D,
3D?  Maybe the dealII example could be co-opted to work in libmesh?
