I suspect that the DNS timeout is happening for every file that the importer tries to download, and the importer doesn't consider this a permanent sort of failure. This could cause the sync to take a very long time. I'm not familiar with what the DNS timeout would be, but even if it were 5 seconds and there were 10,000 items to sync that would be 50,000 seconds (more than half of a day!).

The importer should have a class of errors it considers to be permanent failures that includes DNS timeouts and probably out of disk space errors. Can anyone think of others?
