[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Import Oddities, or How I Learned To Start Worrying And Stuff

Hi all,

I'm experiencing a number of strange things during batch imports -- I am 
*mostly* sure that nothing has been slipped into my coffee and I've only 
had about 1/2 a pot so I don't think it's the caffeine.

Is there any reason that the importer would fail [1] on an EAD (MS.3374) 
while it was in a job of ~100 files, then succeed [2] on an import of 3 
EADs? Has anyone seen anything like this? I did not modify the file 
between attempts. I'm going to drink more coffee - that seems to help.

In all seriousness, could this be a configuration issue? Maybe Java 
doesn't have enough memory? I'm very confused by this.
