Nevermind, I was able to find the results:

It looks like there were a few very large result sets that were about 130MB
gumming things up. It was taking more than 10min for that single file to
download from the results ftp server to CircleCI, which caused it to
timeout when no status was presented for those 10 min. A typical result set
is just a few MB and these were from early december, so I deleted them from
the server and that seems to have gotten things going again.

In general, I wonder if CircleCI is throtteling us or something, develop
only has 650MB of files (now) and it still took 25min to download all of
them! Not sure how to debug that.

I've also made a pull request that prints out a dot every 100KB of FTP
transfer, so that should keep CircleCI happy if this happens again in the
