apex merge no longer working

I was merging large amount of Account records in a 24 hour period. This morning I started getting CPU limit exceeded errors. Now the Apex merge code is no longer working.

Hi Kevin,

The Maximum CPU time on the Salesforce servers - 10,000 milliseconds (Synchronous limit) 60,000 milliseconds(Asynchronous limit).

Mark this as solved if it's resolved.

Thanks. i know the governor limits, however, I was experiencing something else because I had run the same query repeatedtely for several hours merging accounts of different sales reps until I received the cpu limit warning. After re-starting the query three times, the query would no longer work. Whenever I launched it, the query would run about 1-2 seconds and stop.

The response time for every  other query that I tested , even simple selects was very long
