We think we found it... Our <WorkItemTimeout> value was set to 10 min and
we think it was just hitting that wall. We bumped it to 12 hours for
overkill, and so far the job is still running, so we're hopeful.
One thought... we never found any messages in the event log indicating that
the WorkItemTimeout had expired. It would be nice if that would show up in
the log... could have saved us this detective work.
