Bug Description

The SINDARIN parameter epa_q_max is not used for the beam setup, however, it is referenced for it in the manual.

A quick look up in the source code gives a clear answer:
During dispatch of the EPA structure function, the variable epa_e_max is used (it is also referenced in rt_data.f90).
However, epa_q_max is used for the event transformation, i.e. inserting pT momentum for beam particle for EPA, during event generation.

I'll propose to cleanup the nomenclature (in favor of epa_q_max), the fix should be in the nightly build for tomorrow (and in the next release).
