Dear Roger

There is setting command, 'Attach timeout(s)' in the project of
preferences of tools menu.
I usually modify the value to 10000 sec (Maybe default is 120 sec)
because first two running is finished before 3 hours.
At old version, it didn't affect a long-time running of 1st cycle for
running time estimation.
But at new version, I always use this setting.
I don't know exact meaning of 'Attach timeout' and the reason, but it
works. Please try!
