Description

If the physics list is configured with random garbage in the list
Example:
"LowEnergyEm",
"FastOptical",
"SynchrotronAndGN",
"IonHP",
"HadronHP",
"TryingToBreakG4",
"NeutronHP",
"Decay",
"HadronElastic",
"Stopping" ]
it does not provide any feedback to the user. This could be catastrophic in the event on improperly configured physics factories where we run thinking certain physics is turned on when it is not.

An entry in the PhysicsList that LArG4 cannot handle should be an exception.
