Usually it is because that the size of your phantom is not big enough 
therefore some positron can escape from the phantom without
annihilation. If there are not a lot of warning messages, (less than a few 
per second) then that's fine. Otherwise you need to 
check your phantom and source definition. The common error is that the 
part of the source is outside the phantom.

vector size 1

Hi there,
I am running a GATE simulation and the following warning message keeps 
popping up:
[GateTrajectoryNavigator::FindAnnihilationGammasTrackID]  WARNING : 
positron found and photonID vector size: 1
Does anyone know what is going on, and what might be the problem? I am 
using Gate 3.1.2 and I am simulating an ecat system with a simple cylinder 
phantom and source.
Thanks a lot,
