Question Strange energy deposition

Hi, all!
I am studying energy deposition patterns of electrons hitting a solid block of scintillator. The algorithm is very simple: I have a few lines in the ProcessHits() function of my G4VSensitiveDetector subclass which writes to a file the position and amount of energy deposited in each hit.
The problem is that I keep getting these strange striped patterns of high energy deposition. These can be easily seen here and here.
Any ideas on what might be causing this? I've tried varying my cut values, but that had no effect.

Thanks!
Ben
