I'd guess that when the test execution hangs, FitNesse spits out an
exception on the console where it was started. It'd be interesting to
know what the exception is. It sounds like you're doing everything

!paths widget should go on pages above the test pages. When using a
Virtual Wiki, the linking wiki should have !path widgets on or above
the linking page. Virtual Wiki Links should link to the remote wiki
just beneath the !paths so none get inherited though the link.

Check for exceptions on both the remote FitNesse and you local
FitNesse. Try copying a test page and running it with out the
VirtualWiki on your computer. Let me know if you're still stumped.
