As it is mentioned in the post the error appeared when width in eV was converted into half-life. It does not apply to those nuclei which have half-life directly from database. In the last version of RadioactiveDecay almost all these nuclei were removed, except Be8.

List of wrong half-life for RadioactiveDecay3.4:

5HE (0.60 MeV) z2.a5 7HE (160 keV) z2.a7 9HE (0.30 MeV) z2.a9 10HE (0.3 MeV) z2.a10

5LI (1.5 MeV) z3.a5 10LI (1.2 MeV) z3.a10

6BE (92 keV) z4.a6 8BE (6.8 eV) z4.a8 13BE (0.9 MeV) z4.a13

7B (1.4 MeV) z5.a7 9B (0.54 keV) z5.a9

8C (230 keV) z6.a8

11N (740 keV) z7.a11

12O (0.40 MeV) z8.a12

15F (1.0 MeV) z9.a15 16F (40 keV) z9.a16

16NE (122 keV) z10.a16

all of them had no decay channel too.
