true, but I don't see why you would have the same norms if you distribute with constraints from hanging nodes only or constraints from hanging nodes+ PBC. I think we can agree that the two ConstraintMatrix objects should be different as in the case of PBC you additionally need to make sure that FE space on the refined boundary matches that on the opposite, non-refined side. If you suspect that there is a bug in constraints, you could check this by simply choosing some more-or-less random vector, distribute and plot-over-line in Paraview / Visit. More cumbersome comparison would be to evaluate random field at the opposite points. You can use FEField function and then choose L/2-\delta and -L/2+\delta with \delta = 1e-8 or so for X coordinate and then whatever you want to Y/Z. This should give you the same value anywhere on the two periodically matching points for a random input vector after constraints are distributed.
