Has Theory Sim. time limit? Stderr log in task 267543621 shows that VM is terminated for a limit of 360,000 seconds...
Does this mean that this task would be crunch "forever"?

Has Theory Sim. time limit?
The default setup is that tasks are killed after 100 hours run time to avoid endless running.
However there are tasks who could be successful when running longer, but no guarantee.
It's a pity that you don't get credit for it.
In the past a task did several jobs within the VM until 12 hours were passed and the last one was finshed up to total 18 hours.
When not ready after 18 hours the task was ended gracefully and the user got credit for it.
