How the operating system manages the buffering is something you'd 
usually have to talk to the OS about.

Using all the exactly fines and execution files (except they are within a script on the SC), put it on SC, run the job, and it is killed with a 10 hr walltime.  Something is majorly wrong, just trying to work out how I can look into what is going on, since only have initial output to look at.  Last thing in the log file is:

Well, it's hanging after starting successfully, but we can't really 
guess why without some more information on the hardware, compilation 
method and simulation details.
