Thanks! Actually they did build on my laptop, the problem was only with
offloading. Apparently a new problem appeared later, thanks for the fix!

It may be the same root cause. I did not suspect anything when big packages
needed to be transferred, but then it keeps happening with small packages
such as bash or imagemagick. And it becomes very annoying with packages
that have many inputs. As soon as I see no new line "exporting path..."
after a few seconds, it is almost certain that something broke and we will
end up with a timeout one hour later. I am trying with dblatex for about
a dozen times now. At some point in time, all machines of the build farm
will end up having (almost) all the inputs :-|

Yes, then building the package took no time at all! :-)
