The tag: op-V09-05-00 fixes this problem. G4OpBoundaryProcess::DoIt calls aParticleChange.ProposeVelocity(aTrack.GetVelocity()) at every invocation, so that the variable - isVelocityChanged = true - in G4ParticleChange and hence theVelocityChange = pStep->GetTrack()->CalculateVelocity() is not requested. Moreover, for FresnelRefraction the process calculates the finalVelocity locally from Material2->GetMaterialPropertiesTable()->GetProperty("GROUPVEL") instead of calling G4Track::CalculateVelocityForOpticalPhoton().
Please, replace G4OpBoundaryProcess.cc in your 9.5 installation with the attached file. My hope is that this fix makes it into patch01 for 9.5.
Again, thank you for reporting this bug and my appologies. At your convenience, please confirm that your application runs correctly with this fix in 9.5.
Best regards, Peter
