None Simulation freezes, crashes

Dear All,

Before starting flooding you all with my problem let me introduce myself. I'm a PhD student doing the thesis under the nTOF project. I need the geant4 simulation to calculate some efficiencies and detector responses to use in data analysis.

The geometry:

The geometry consists in a Total Absorber Calorimeter with 40 detectors including the photomultiplier, support structure, a neutron absorber, beam pipes and a sample.

The problem:

The simulation freezes and doesn't respond anymore. The verbose mode showed that the simulation stopped during the tracking of a secondary particle inside a sensitive volume. I have tested the geometry using geantinos and it didn't crash. I have also tested all the geometry without the sensitive volumes and it doesn't crash. Simulating a single sensitive volume makes it to crash. I have also checked for overlaps using the dawnfile and DAVID and found no problem with the sensitive volumes.

I have also attched the ".config/bin/Linux-g++/" where all the compilation options are the g++ compiler is g++-4.3 (Ubuntu 4.3.3-5ubuntu4) 4.3.3

Any help suggestions are very welcome. Best regards, Carlos Carrapiço
