simultaneous use of auxdetgeometry service with geometry service
We need to access AuxDetGeometryCore via the auxdetgeometry service. At the same time, we need to access GeometryCore via geometry service. My understanding is that the auxdetgeometry service has problems in this use case. What course of action is recommended?

That is because there is a poor-man synchronisation attempt between the two services.
One is a fork of the other, and both attempt to initialise a geometry representation from a GDML file.
Since this happens via ROOT... ça va sans dire. ROOT
gGeoManager (if I remember the name right), and
g stands for "ROOT loves g lobal state".
There was also the request at the time (LArIAT, I think) that
AuxDetGeometry service could be loaded without
My dream at the time was to have a
GeometrySource which managed the shared resource, and the other two services would interface with it as needed... never happened.
