None Nanosecond precision in global time

I would like to store the time of the tracks with nanoseconds precision.

The problem is that when I simulated a U238 radiactive chain. The U238 track time is the meanlife of the decay, so it becomes a large number very soon. Of the order of 1e17 seconds.

I have tried to use SetGlobalTime from G4Track to reset this time and avoid timing precision in subsequent daugthers.

However, this has no effect. The problem would be solved if I could force the decay to occur at time zero. Since I am not interested on the time it took to decay.

Do you have any ideas?
