Michel Maire provided me with the following recipe:
From Em physics, there are 3 families of constraints that can limit the step size:
1- production of secondary (ionis and brem). To prevent them, put an infinite cut (1 km):
/run/setCut 1 km
2- limitation of continuous energy loss: dRoverRange. Control it via StepFunction
/process/eLoss/StepFunction 1 1 m
The first 1 means (dRoverRange) dR/R = 100%; e.g. the allowed max. decrease in stopping range per step, and the second 1m is the lower limit of step size (finalRange). For details, see the Physics Reference Manual 7.1.3
3- multiple scattering. I do not know how to suppress the constraint, except by deactivate msc
