No, nothing has changed in that regard to my knowledge for 0.94. What you say above is correct, and is the same as what I said in my reply, right?

But the maxwalltime you said you used in your sites file was 16:40:00, not 2:0:00, right?

Im confused by your question, Lorenzo.  You said in the original email on this thread that your site file specified:

  <profile namespace="globus" key="maxTime">172800</profile>
  <profile namespace="globus" key="maxwalltime">16:40:00</profile>

and it seemed like you were asking why your app() invocation was terminated by a 513 error after what you said was "By my reckoning it is 15 hours or 900 minutes or 54000 seconds"

But as far as I can tell, your app() was terminated exactly when I would expect it to be terminated, after a walltime of 16:39:00. This is the way Swift and Coasters worked in 0.93 and has not to my knowledge changed in 0.94. Nothing I see in the info you provided looks to me like either an error or a change in behavior.

Can you clarify your question?
