Description

In trying to run single particle simulations in the context of ICARUS I encountered an exception that stops processing when running the Geant4 step. The messages are:

%MSG-d ParticleListAction::SteppingAction:  LArG4:largeant@  21-Jul-2017 11:24:42 PDT run: 1 subRun: 0 event: 1 ParticleListAction.cxx:350
: DEBUG - process='muIoni' ignoreProcess=0 fstoreTrajectories=1
%MSG
ERROR: 8 - Floating point inexact result.

Abort trap: 6

This is using a debug build on OS X (Yosemite) in larsoft v06_44_00 and with the current develop branch of icaruscode.
Steps to repeat:
  1. first one should generate some number of particles:
    lar -c prod_muon_0-1GeV_isotropic_icarus.fcl -n 100
  2. With this output file, run the geant4 step:
    lar -c standard_g4_icarus.fcl -s prod_mxxxxx -n 100

I never could reproduce the error and don't think it has anything to do with Geant 4.

I have not personally run into this problem recently and we have been running a number of single particle samples… so I would guess its not a problem anymore.
