Thanks for the feedback! This kind of thing is very helpful.

Are any of the binary releases offered by globus compatible with your system? This could save you
the trouble of building.

Interesting, can you give us more info on why you suspect this is the reason?

We have traditionally avoided handling meta-data issues like this and ownership/file permissions.
However we are open to users needs. We will have some internal discussions on this.

This will very likely happen soon. We have identified this as a problem elsewhere and have plans to
fix detect and terminate transfers that hang like this.
