One way of handling this in Saxon is by writing a TraceListener that monitors execution. It may be possible to write a loop that doesn't generate any calls on the TraceListener, but you would have to try quite hard. You would certainly catch the people who have written long-running stylesheets as a result of stupidity rather than out of deliberate malice. Michael Kay http://www.saxonica.com/
