In the new process G4UHadronElasticProcess it is fixed. This process is 
available since 8.1.

Elastic scattering of deuteron due to strong interaction is not the main
process, because the cross section is relatively small and the effect is
only scattering on small angle.

For deuterons I would suggest to use binary cascade as inelastic 
interaction. Some example you can find out
