Batch stalls; parameter too long

A batch job (such as ill-64) stalls. There is no error message, but the job process continues to appear in util c/1 and in "ps -ef".
This happened when an unusually long value was specified for the p_partner_list parameter. The ./pc_b_eng/p-ill-64.xml has this:
<!-- Param: P-PARTNER-LIST X(1000). F04 -->
Though only about 680 characters (100 partners) were specified in the ill-64 submission, it seems that the program had a problem processing that many. A subsequent run with "All" specified as the partner-list was successful.
