Click on the Forum title, e.g. on the "Forums by Category" page, to read a sequence of postings to the Forum and its threads all in one page. If you are only interested in one thread or the thread following a specific posting, click the thread or the posting, which takes you to a smaller page, which contains only the part you are interested in and may be easier to navigate.
Messages are "chained" if there are only replies at the first level, i.e. 1/1.html, 1/1/1.html etc. In case of "chained" messages the message number is replaced by the icon and there is no indentation.

Thanks for being so thorough with your simulation and with trusting Geant4!
You found a bug - and my explanation of 'polishedbackpainted' at
does not tell the full truth. It is true that the sigma_alpha parameter is NOT used at this stage to calculate the roughness of the boundary since the boundary is assumed to be polished but the probability parameters of the UNFIED model: SPECULARLOBECONSTANT, SPECULARSPIKECONSTANT and BACKSCATTERCONSTANT are NOT ignored. In fact, since they are by default zero, the reflection chosen is always the default, which is Lambertian.
The code at:
if ( theModel == unified &&
(theFinish != polished && theFinish != polishedbackpainted))
(the logic is becoming really spaghetti)
I have no explanation why photons escape your box.
As in N06PhysicsList.cc (examples/novice/N06) can you set:
G4int verbose = 1; theBoundaryProcess->SetVerboseLevel(verbose);
and pipe the output to a file. In your situation with n>>1 theBoundaryProcess (without the correction above) should only ever write:
and with the correction:
*** StepTooSmall ***
(for that Navigator 'reallocation step' which follows every reflection)
