[Gate-users] ROOT filename problem

Dear Gaters,

I found a strange similar behavior...
When the file name of the output ROOT file has less than 10 letters ; 
the ROOT file is not written... I tested it with different macros 
(including the benchSPECT and benchPET) and this well reproductible !!
Of course, when the file name has more than 10 letters ; the output ROOT 
file is written
My configuration => macosX 10.4.7, gcc 4.0.1, G4.8.0.p01, GATE3.0.0, 
CLHEP2.0.2.2, ROOT5.10

Note : this is not the case with the previous "official" version of 
GATE/GEANT (i.e : G4.7.0.p01, GATE2.2.0)

Does anybody else encounter this problem ?
