could you please tell us which operating system/distribution you're using,
and whether you are using the precompiled binaries or compiled from source?

If wvWare is hanging, then it is a bug with wvWare and it got confused
by one of the word documents. I didn't think it could process some office xp
documents, but I'm unsure since it seems to work on some files and not
others. You could try downloading a newer version of wvWare and replacing
or removing the version that comes with greenstone (in $GSDLHOME/bin/linux).
