I've waited 51 minutes, then ended the process. After a quick calculation, I realized it should have taken about 1h and few minutes to complete the 4 character space at 4*940 p/s, but it's no big deal. I'm just very surprised the ETA can be so wrong on a short session. May be it's too short to get the opportunity to adjust, as I've seen in previous multi-day sessions.
