Question amount of produced photons in the scintillator

Hello,

I need some help concerning the produced number of photons in a scintillator after an interaction witha gamma ray. I set the resolution scale of the scintillator to zero, so that a gamma ray of a certain energy should produce always the same number of photons. But this is not always the case: - the number of produced photons is constant, if the the ProductionCut is set to 1mm; - the number of produced photon variies if the ProductionCut is set to 0.1mm or lower; Does someone know the reason herefore?

Thanks.
