 Please accept my excuses. The parametrisation of dE/dx and cross section
 has been modified in August 2000, in order to improve the low energy
 part (1 keV->10 keV). But this mods has never been propagated to the
 Physics Reference Manual. This will be done asap.
 Thanks to have pointed out the problem.
