This is maddening but informative.

One day it happens almost every time next two days, while looking for a
sequence it works every time on every system I try.

The only thing that /might/ be different is the network stability.  I do
most of my testing in front of the TV over a power line AV link to my
wired network.  Most of the time it's rock solid but occasionally
transfer rates go down and perhaps it's dropping packets.

I haven't given up yet.
