Hi,

  G4PSSphereSurfaceCurrent uses inner surface of the shell.
G4Sphere can define a shell type solid by specifying both inner radius
and outer radius. 

 However, the the constructor of ellipsoid is defined only as:
 G4Ellipsoid(const G4String& pName,
                      G4double  pxSemiAxis,
                      G4double  pySemiAxis,
                      G4double  pzSemiAxis,
                      G4double  pzBottomCut=0,
                      G4double  pzTopCut=0);

 Therefore, I do not think it defines only a volume, not a shell.
 I mean it has only outer radius.

 I you defines a shell using a couple of Ellipsolid, the inner surface
is not recognized as "inner surface". It has to be the outer surface of
Ellipsolid volume inside the mother Ellipsolid volume.

 If it is the case, I suggest to use the outer surface for scoring.

Cheers,
Tsukasa Aso
