Ah, I should have the following more clear: The patch only changes the 
behaviour if the specified slice is not inside the computational domain.

In your example this is not the case and you should get what you want. 
however if you would not specify a slice (and the default is 0.0), I 
would like to get 2.5 (in your example). Even in the case of the closest 
slice there whould be the question whether to take the really closest 
(1.0 in the example) or the closest, that is not inside the ghost zone
