None 'non-continous' electron trajectories

Dear Colleagues,

I have a very simple program where I have defined a local constant magnetic field in a sub-volume. This volume is filled with air and I am generating 8 MeV electrons such that they could spiral and eventually they make it out of the magnetic volume. Most of the interaction points look fine but for some steps the electron decides to perform a sudden 'jump'. I have attached a screen capture to my message to see what I am talking about.

I have circled with black a secondary track which looks fine, and I have used red to circle some of these jumps which I think are not physical. What is going on here?

All I can tell is that there are no auxiliary points along the straight line where the jump is performed.

Thanks,

Dragos
