The failures happen on our machines at different points, definatelly not
at the same key each time.  Sometimes it occurs before any keys are
transmitted, and other times after 70 or something.  It doesn't seem to
have a pattern to it other than if it fails the first time, repeated
attempts soon after appear more likely to fail too.  Not a big problem
though, I just wrote a little script that checks for failed attempts and
retrys the transfer if needed.
