Hello,

 From what you describe (some runs take a few minutes and others weeks) 
this is very likely that the simulation is stuck. This can be for 
several reasons... Could you provide more information on this (Failure 
rate ? Do you have a magnetic field ? Geometry (a single block of ice , 
or more complex ? ?)

Cheers,
Marc
