The Dilepton Spectrometer collaboration has reported a bump in the e+e- mass distribution at around 2m in 4.9 GeV proton-Be collisions. Previous calculations have shown that this bump does not have its origin in nucleon-nucleon bremsstrahlung nor in the Dalitz decay of the resonance. In this paper we estimate the contribution from two-pion annihilation based on relativistic kinetic theory, on the experimentally measured cross sections for the production of up to five pions, and on a phase space generator for the pion momentum distributions. The calculation fails to reproduce the data.. The origin of the bump remains unexplained.
