I just realized that "application.conf" is an automatically generated
file, and I think it might be running around the same time as the
replication script.  Perhaps my replication script and the
auto-generation script are occasionally running at the exact same
time, thus causing the replication script to not have a complete file
to transmit.  I'm staggering the replication script to see if that
solves the problem.
