The relative contributions of the electron capture and electron loss to the continuum (ECC and ELC) processes to the cusp electron production have been studied for collisions of C+ ions with He atoms at impact energies 40 and 100 keV/u. The results obtained for 100 keV/u were compared with classical trajectory Monte Carlo calculations, and it was found that the ECC to ELC ratio predicted by the theory is larger than the measured value by a factor of about 3. Possible reasons of the discrepancy are discussed.
