I would like to know at what time a WU is running for too long.
I have a few WUs running for 58h plus on a pretty fast computer I7 940.
Normaly they run for up to 2or 3h, not for days.

Every now and then there will be a long wu. In fact somebody just returned one today that ran for 162 hrs, possibly a new record for this project.

The project has been configured to allow such long WUs to run without any issues. We had an issue with WUs timing out last week, but that was fixed and as far as I know there are no more issues.

The deadline has been set to give users a week to return results. Checkpointing is also done every 5 minutes, so not much work is lost if you restart. So I would suggest looking at the progress meter and the time to completion to determine if the WU can finish within the deadline.

If the progress meter hasn't changed in 5 or 6 hours, then the WU could be hung and you might want to abort it.
