I've found the gamma-ray intensity from the radioactive decay of I-137, La-145, and Rb-93 is incorrect comparing to nuclear data.
For my application I was only looking at gammas > 2 MeV, but I found large discrepancies in I-137 and La-145, and a smaller discrepancy in Rb-93. The simulation was built using Geant4.10.03.p02, using data files G4RadioactiveDecay5.1.1 and G4PhotonEvaporation4.3.2. The simulated decays of I-137 and La-145 generated significantly more high-energy gamma-rays compared to the evaluated data [1,2], roughly 7 and 4 times more, respectively. And I found a 20% fewer high-energy gamma-rays compared to the evaluated data  for Rb-93. The radioactive decay and photoevaporation data files need to be fixed for these isotopes.
