Do I understand you correctly - a G4Tubs with r_min>0 is your 'world volume'? This is probably not a very good idea. The space r<r_min is then "undefined"!

May I suggest that you define your geometry differently all together. Define the world G4Tubs r_min=0 and r=r_max. Then place a daughter inside the world again with r_min=0 and r=46*mm.

Now, you have two options, you can associate your field with only the daughter (see field03 example), or you can associate the field everywhere. That'll work because you are apparently anyway killing any particles outside the daughter.

Let us know if this doesn't work better for you.
