Another hint concerning progress: the "Prover Session" panel in 
Isabelle/jEdit has a very useful overview of the whole session.  Dark 
purple indicates hot spots where the system is running or potentially 
non-terminating.  Double-clicking on a theory node opens the corresponding 
file in the editor.
