I am not familiar with the problems you had with Li6 + n reaction, but considering your memory problems, I do not think you will be able to discern the problem (which sounds like a memory leak) without running your program with memory profiler, e.g. valgrind.

On ubuntu, (if you don't have valgrind already), installation should be straight-forward: sudo apt-get install valgrind; for running your progam with it, try:

valgrind --tool=memcheck --leak-check=yes your_g4_program [your_g4_program_args]

It might be usefull to save output to file, which you can do with 

Try running your program with a small number of events first (10 or 100) and see if you can spot some leaks. Perhaps if you post the log file here, somebody might be able to spot the problem.
