Please, what does it mean this run error?:

Start Run processing.

This is a simple proton beam impinging on a water sliced target for testing different variants of physics models. I started to test the complete Physics List from the advanced hadrontherapy example in my geometry with the idea to do some small changes according to my own problem. All the hadronic models work all right, except the proton-precompound-binary, which give me the above error. When I run the proper hadrontherapy example with this model, every thing is OK. Why it is crashing in the other case? My installed version of G4 is: Geant4.8.1.p02 as well as the CLHEP-

I appreciate any suggestion..

Thanks a lot,
