### Tensor function projections strange behaviour

Hi everyone, I have been doing some 2D elasticity and need to obtain sigma. For it, lets just deal with getting grad(u) numerically. Apparently projecting on different meshes raises the error. Here is a MWE:

I found a possible workaround... not too elegant nor fast, but functional:

```
N = 10
mesh = UnitSquareMesh(N,N)
V = VectorFunctionSpace(mesh, 'CG', 1)
u = Function(V)
VT = TensorFunctionSpace(mesh, 'CG', 1)
gradu = project(grad(u),VT)
# This one raises the error
VT = TensorFunctionSpace(UnitSquareMesh(N,N), 'CG', 1)
gradu = project(grad(u), VT)
```

I found a possible workaround... not too elegant nor fast, but functional:

```
N = 10
mesh = UnitSquareMesh(N,N)
V = FunctionSpace(mesh, 'CG', 1)
DV = FunctionSpace(mesh, 'DG', 0)
ux = project(u[0], V)
uy = project(u[1], V)
uxdx = project(ux.dx(0), DV)
uxdy = project(ux.dx(1), DV)
uydx = project(uy.dx(0), DV)
uydy = project(uy.dx(1), DV)
gradu = as_matrix([[uxdx, uxdy], [uydx, uydy]])
VT = TensorFunctionSpace(UnitSquareMesh(N,N), 'DG', 0)
gradu = project(gradu, VT)
```

In fact, directly projecting grad(u) also fails, which forced me to project partial derivatives too. Best regards.

`const double J_c0`

are being redeclared, and indeed the cpp file has duplicated code... This also happens for scalar functions and their gradients, not only for TensorFunctionSpaces. Don't know what the intended behavior is. Maybe file a bug report?On the other hand, if you do it in 2 steps, it works:

- project the gradient onto a space on the same mesh

- interpolate the result onto a different mesh

?
