Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

SELW: The initial thread of the job is in a select wait.  More information
on the select() function is in the Sockets APIs chapter in the APIs 
topic collection in the Programming category in the IBM i           
Information Center at http://www.ibm.com/systems/i/infocenter/.     

Generally you do not have to do anything. The job is just waiting for some activity before it continues. Many times it is an IBM job. We have a bar coding application that will put jobs in this status while waiting for someone to scan something.
