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.

|2||3||2||3 levels / 2 levels|
|3||3||All||3 levels / all levels (all postings)|
You're right, and the Geant4 code is OK here. My problem was really double deletes of G4Track, and that was in my code, not Geant4's; now fixed.
I did not look at G4Track::operator=(G4Track&) because I had seen it was hidden (made private with a comment), and thought that meant it was unimplemented. It is used in the G4Track copy constructor, and does the new G4DynamicParticle that balances the delete in ~G4Track().
Given that operator= has a real and complete implementation, why is it hidden (private with comment)? -- that is a well-known C++ idiom that normally means it is unimplemented, and is declared private merely to prevent its use. (Rhetorical question: the answer is probably buried in ancient history.)
