Show a backtrace when it fails, then perhaps someone might have an
idea.  So far you just described a strange failure, but show no
evidence that can be used to try to figure out what might go wrong.

Btw, does "once in a while" mean that this fails with some specific
packages, or does it mean that the same package sometimes loads and
sometimes doesn't?
