Congrats for finding the bug and thanks for fixing.

the issue was compiler related. GCC 5.4 on ubuntu 16.04 initialized
factorizeOnly to false by default, while GCC 7.2 on ubuntu 18.04 did
not do this.
That's a good example of "undefined" behavior when using non-initialized
variables... Definitely a nasty bug.
Therefore, the only necessary change ended up being the explicit
initialization of factorizeOnly=false.
In addition to the bug fix, I edited the solvers so flow.useSolvers=3
and 4 can now be used with the default CPU build. I can confirm that
flow.useSolver=4 enables multicore CPU factorization, while
flow.useSolver=3 sticks to 1 core factorization :-).
Excellent. FYI multicore CPU factorization was faster than single core
in my benchmarks, but multicore solve phase (using the factorized form)
was not, it was even a bit slower than single core. Hence the distinct
attributes numFactorizeThreads and numSolveThreads.
