Hey gang,

My MC jobs that I run locally at IU have gone from 5 minutes to run to 10 hours when using software version "version_4.0.0". I'm running geant3. Has anyone else tried working with this build yet?

Possibly also related: during the geant step I get many warning messages of the form: "Warning in savehits: unsaved hit information found from sensitive volume XXXX, hit discarded". These blow up my logfiles to ~hundreds of megabytes.

I tried running with version_3.8 and version_3.9 too. These ran fast and didn't produce the same warning messages.

I experience this both with a photon gun and an omega->3pi simulation.

Hello Jon,

What is your value of JANA_GEOMETRY_URL? What is your simulation run number?

Hi Richard et al,

Looks like I am using the path $GLUEX_TOP/hdds/hdds-4.0.0/main_HDDS.xml for $JANA_GEOMETRY_URL. I'm using run number 30300 as a test case.
