while you wait, you could have a look at the "Troubleshooting" section:
in particular item 1.15 "pw.x runs but nothing happens";
and also to the "Running on parallel machine" section:
You could also remove output redirection (in case of trouble, it tends
to eat error messages); run a smaller calculation; try serial execution;
etc. etc.
