Need a notification if a workflow hangs

We use several workflows which are activated by schedule. 
Sometimes such a workflow 'hangs' because an underlying object (job/script/..) run into an error or is blocked.

Because we don't have active monitoring for those workflows we want to be notified (by mail) if that situation occurs

I tried to use the run_tab (As described in Discussion 7089)  But that only seems to work if the workflow ends with a return_code.

Is there some (other) methode we can use to get informed if the workflow somewhere hangs.  

Thanks in advance
