This message means that some of the josb that you tried to run took longer 
than is allowed by default.

I plotted your logs using swift-plot-log, and from the graph 'karajan 
active JOB_SUBMISSION cumulative duration' in the karajan tab 
it looks like while most of your jobs take somewhere between seconds to a 
few minutes, a number of your jobs take longer (up to 3000 seconds in that 

Check that: i) an hour is a sane time for your programs to be taking, and 
ii) that the queues that you are submitting to (the default on ncsa, for 
example) allow this length of time.
