Sherpa 2 crashes when generating specific t tbar gamma* (Run.dat attached). The error message is as follows:

} Exception_Handler::Terminate(): Pre-crash status saved to '/work/02130/ponyisi/sherpawork/ttll-lowm/sherpa2/sample/StatusWed_Jan1_12-31-00_2014'. Event_Handler::MPISync() {

Memory usage increased by 4098 MB, now 4142 MB. This might indicate a memory leak! Please monitor this process closely.

} In Event_Handler::Finish : Summarizing the run may take some time. ERROR in Event_Handler::Finish:

After event : 15 / 3 particles / blobs undeleted ! Continue and hope for the best.

I'd guess it's a memory leak in the QED radiation generation?

thanks for reporting this bug. Yes, this is a memory leak, the "new" in Photons merely is the one to run over the limit. We will investigate the source of this leak.

Cheers, Marek
