Hi Moritz,

I am a bit perplexed why you want to go back to 9.2.p01 when you have 9.3 working. Also, please note 9.2 has four patches in total. Please, see the release notes at:

http://geant4.cern.ch/support/source_archive.shtml

to maybe find the answer to your question. It is possible that there was a bug in G4Ellipsoid whereby the geometry boundary was not recognized during tracking. The simulation of a dielectric_metal optical surface does not depend on the type of solid. If one solid works and another doesn't then it must be an issue with the solid class.

In any event, in Jan. 2012 I would advise you to work with 9.4.p03

Best regards, Peter
