I didn't understand the paragraph just before the following (but it doesn't matter). The important point is that geant4 does not allow for daughter volumes to protrude out of the mother volumes!!!

Yes, that is one solution. Another solution is to make your fibers of two halves. One half below the surface, placed inside the daughter, the other half outside placed inside the world volume. You make the two halves from the same material, of course. Now, the disadvantage is that tracking photons inside the fiber will see this artificial boundary but not much is lost because the G4OpBoundaryProcess skips immediately when the media or the index of two media are the same. Still, the number of steps taken are doubled.
It is not wrong for you to adopt the solution in the bug report, for G4Navigator, but it does not pertain to your immediate situation or issue. The suggested fix has not been approved by the G4 experts yet but it sure works quite well for me.
