I use unison several times a day to sync over 100GiB of data. I see it stall quite frequently. I think it's a bug in unison, possibly timing related. I see it only when syncing over the internet on a DSL connection, not over a LAN. Note that sometimes it /does/ come back--you just have to wait, possibly several tens of minutes. This can happen if you have changed a big (multi-GiB in size) file, and it wants to "reconcile the changes". But it can appear to be stuck. I have on occasion had to resort to deleting the cache/index files in ~/.unison/(arb|frp)* and getting it to rebuild them from scratch on both the client and server. Note that version 2.40.61 (not in Debian) fixes quite a few of these problems, but is still not perfect. But if you have the time to build it, it's a big improvement. The build scripts are slightly buggy though--it took me a while to work out and fix! Regards, Roger -- .''`.
