Question strange results for polished reflector

Hello

 I am trying to see the difference in light collection using
 various combinations of reflector and scintillator surface with 
 infitisemal air gap .
 For polished reflector I use polishebackpainted parameter and for 
diffuse reflector - groundbackpainted.
 To describe the interface I use SS = 1 for polished and SL=1 for diffuse.
 The geometry is simple - scintillator tile with MPPC.
 The result for both SS=1 and SL=1 for polished reflector are exactly 
 the same e.g. number of hits on MPPC,x and y distribution of hits on MPPC etc.
 Then I set verbose = 1 and run 1 event for both settings (SS=1 and SL=1),
 in the output files I see exactly the same parameters of photons : Momentum 
 direction and polarization for all photons.
 I would expect different results for SS=1 and SL=1 with polished reflector. 
 Looks like that the parameter sigmaalpha is ignored for SL=1 with polished 
 reflector.
 With diffuse reflector the results are quite different as one can expect. 
 Is something wrong in my simulation? 

 Thanks 
                 Yuri
