I suspect that some sort of timeout is involved. Storage pool backups use a lot
of CPU, and a lot of db reads to generate a list of files that need to be
backed up. I suspect that it may take some time to ditch that queued list of
files before you can start another stg backup session involving the same pair
of storage pools (primary and copy).
