I'm having some issues trying to "PULL" replicate from my target db (version 1.2.0) where the source db is (version 1.1.1).
Basically it runs for some time, then hits some update sequence and 1.2.0 thinks _changes feed in 1.1.1 has stalled. However I can use curl and it the _changes feed does indeed return, but it takes several minutes before it starts. Not sure how to solve, but this is a real blocker right now, as I'd hate to pull production offline for 8+ hours just to sync the dbs.
FWIW, I made a copy of the .couch database file from 1.1.1 and placed it a different directory... and ran the same filtered replication locally within the same CouchDB instance successfully... but in the time it took for the replication to run... I got more docs... which I figured I could just use replication from 1.1.1 instance to 1.2.0 instance to 'top it off'.
