Sorry for the late reply. Everything else is inline.

Yep, did that. Anywho, it's not just the ddocs that aren't
replicating. At whatever particular point the replication stops,
nothing further gets pulled from the master. Not to mention the other
three databases that fail completely.

Hmm... using 1.0.0_1 that made available for download last
year running on lucid, and 1.0.1 from the Maverick repos. IIRC,'s 1.0.0_1 is equivalent to 1.0.1 right?

But here's how it looks like. The dev machine holds a copy of the
couch which replicates continuously from Master. Since we're moving
things over to a new machine, I initiated a pull into the new machine,
which never completes on the first three databases. For the rest of
the databases, partially replicates, then replication crashes for
those  last three.

I put up the same version of couch on my workstation, and it completes
just fine, whether I pull from master or dev, but whenever I pull from
the New machine (from master, dev or my workstation), it doesn't

Dev <----- Master -----> New Machine
 1.0.0_1  | 1.0.0_1  | 1.0.1 | | maverick repo
 ok       |          | Fails.

Lol. Sorry... Jumping between couch and postgres.

I'll try replicating again today. Seems there was a full moon this
past weekend. I wouldn't put it past gremlins or other cosmic forces
to have fudged with my brain or my machines.
