    Florian already pointed out a possible mistake in your geometry
    (nitrogen volume and PB tubes), however this doesn't affect what you
    observe with respect to the source sampling (run's fine).

    As for your "isotropic" sampling it's not fully clear to me what you
    would like to do. In case you search to homogeneously irradiate your
    tubes from below I would suggest to use the BEAM card of FLUKA and apply
    a rectangular shape to your beam:

    WHAT(4) > 0.0 : If WHAT(6) > 0.0, beam width in x-direction in cm. The
                         profile is assumed to be rectangular.
    WHAT(5) > 0.0 : If WHAT(6) > 0.0, beam width in y-direction in cm. The
                         profile is assumed to be rectangular.

    Furthermore, did you set SDUM of BEAMPOS to NEGATIVE on purpose? In your
    source routine you then not only set the particle source location and
    direction cosines but also WBEAM yourself.
