I think this code can behave badly in special cases. I think it's used to calculate, generally, an intercept point in 3D space between a helix and an arbitrary plane. I had issues when the track momentum was too low which I presume meant that the track actually never intercepted the plane anywhere. My memory fails to tell me if this is the error I got. I think I fixed that problem in the MS code by checking analytically if the helix would intercept the plane and only if that was true use this (iterative) method to find the true intercept point. This might be an edge case of some kind in that process but I'm a little surprised that no one have seen it before. 

Can you send more detailed info on the sample, particles, etc.

Thanks,

	Pelle
