It seems that NWChem jobs that have failed are being marked as "complete" in the job manager. These jobs apparently failed because they had poor starting geometries.

I have tried editing the file parse_nwchem.cgi... However, my attempt at a patch only seems to work if I re-import the output file as a new job. If I run the javascript:ReParse() command from the View Job window, it recognizes the job as failed but does not issue the correct failure code. And if I restart the same job, it will fail again but register as complete until I re-parse it with javascript:ReParse().

I am attaching a sample NWChem output file, and my edited version of parse_nwchem.cgi (which also contains unrelated modifications to run gennbo and to automate some unit conversions for my students).
