[Gate-users] GeomTest Error: Overlapping daughter volumes and overshooting daughter volume

I run a main macro in Gate where I have a camera, phantom, source etc
described. I added the line "/geometry/test/recursive_test" after I
initialize the simulation in my main macro file, to check that the geometry
setup is ok. I get some errors like:
GeomTest Error: Overlapping daughter volumes
The volumes module_P and module_P,
both daughters of volume head_P,
appear to overlap at the following points in global coordinates: (list
GeomTest Error: Overshooting daughter volume
The volume LSO_P appears to extend outside the mother volume
at the following points in global coordinates: (list truncated)...
for different parts of my camera and phantom. Even when I comment out the
phantom and just run the camera I get errors. I find this a bit weird since
I've just copied the camera from the benchmarkPET straight off, no changes.
Maybe these errors aren't important and can be ignored, I don't know. Can
these cause segmentation violations and abort entire runs as I described in
a previous post ("segmentation violation aborts my run")?
