None Problem with G4.9.2: step length and/or energy deposit was illegal

Hi, My G4 application could be run successfully in G4.9.0.p01, but when I ran it in the new installed G4.9.2, something wrong happened, with the error information as followed. As indicated by the error information, the step length and/or energy deposit was illegal. My application is a very simple one, which defines a box of lead, and the incident particle is electron. The step lengths of electron in the detector are summed in the sensitive detector(the whole box is set to be sensitive).

Is there anyone who can give me some hints how this problem could be fixed?

Best regards, Dionusos
