Waiting time is too long

Hi Shawn,

I'd suggest running a known example - perhaps 
from cp2k/cp2k/tests/QS/benchmark where there are benchmark files for 
various sizes of water supercells. Timings for one of those on a given 
number of cores we can more easily tell if the results are reasonable.

To comment on your actual input we'd need to see all the files. 

I'd strongly doubt it is libgrid that is affecting your speed significantly.
