Click on the Forum title, e.g. on the "Forums by Category" page, to read a sequence of postings to the Forum and its threads all in one page. If you are only interested in one thread or the thread following a specific posting, click the thread or the posting, which takes you to a smaller page, which contains only the part you are interested in and may be easier to navigate.
Messages are "chained" if there are only replies at the first level, i.e. 1/1.html, 1/1/1.html etc. In case of "chained" messages the message number is replaced by the icon and there is no indentation.

incidentally I am just struggling with a related problem. I think your problem may result from the limited precision of the G4double that stores the GlobalTime. That is, if the GlobalTime is large enough (billions of years equalling some 10^25 nanoseconds, which is the unit of GlobalTime) then small additions to GlobalTime, like a few minutes, are lost in rounding errors.
In my application I need to track Cerenkov photons produced by K40 decays in water and record their time of impact. To do that I found that I need to reset the GlobalTime of the decay products to zero, otherwise the GlobalTime of the Cerenkov photons will always be equal to the decay time, and their local time will always be zero.
I hope this helps. If you want a look at my code just let me know.
