Question ParticleHPInelastic crash for 80 MeV protons hitting on a thick Be target

From: Yao Yilin <Yao Yilin>

I use the latest Geant4.10.5. I meet an error when I use the 80MeV proton interact with Be9(10mm) target with the phycicslist QGSP_BIC_AllHP. I also met this error when I used Geant4.10.4. The error makes me confused and I hope you can help me with this problem. Thanks very much!

The error messages list as following:

-------- EEEE ------- G4Exception-START -------- EEEE -------

1.I tested this error with example Hard03 also with the physicslist QGSP_BIC_AllHP,and the error came out when I used 75MeV proton and disappeared when I use 74.99MeV proton. So I guess this error might be related to G4Tendl database.

2.I skip this error by "export G4PHP_DO_NOT_CHECK_DIFF_COEFF_REPR=TRUE". Hope it can help someone.
