I cannot judge on your inputs (I'm not an expert), however I see that you 
are using a quite old CP2K version (3.0?). Furthermore, you are not saying 
anything about how CP2K is compiled (I see POPT with Intel compiler).
A way to see where it is hanging is to add TRACE keyword to your input, 
inside the GLOBAL section. My suspicious is that there is something wrong 
with an MPI call, likely too big messages and that's why you don't see the 
problem when you use more nodes. In any case, I suggest to to use a new 
CP2K version...
