I plan to add such a method to the DofMap after 0.5.0 is released (which should be tonight).  The interface is something like this:
DofMap::build_elem_solution (global_solution, dof_indices, local_solution);
For non-constrained Dofs this will simply set
local_solution[i] = global_solution[dof_indices[i]]
And for constrained Dofs the constraint matrix will be built and applied to the solution vector.
Thanks for your patience...

Subject: [Libmesh-users] Nonlinear hanging nodes

Dear Libmesh developers,
I solve nonlinear equation systems using the
NonlinearImplicitSystem class.
I'd like to use the adapative mesh refinement for the nonlinear system.
Does libmesh have a tool that can handle the hanging nodes problem for a nonlinear system?
Thank you,
