Question Does the postpone stack induce cross section bias?

Hi G4Experts,

Does the postpone stack induce cross section bias? In my case I'm using the postpone stack with hadronic physics (ParticleHP).

For example, if I stop a particle in the stepping action at some time (t0), and then send the track to postpone stack. When the track starts during the next event, will the track have a complete knowledge of its history? For example, does it know how many steps it made in the previous event, and therefore correctly calculate the probably of a hadronic event for the next step? Or does the postpone stack create a NEW track at every event, and therefore the tracks lose their history and induce some form of a cross section bias.

Thanks in advance for any help, Cheers, Evan
