When a presentation source with a large number of segments is processed (e.g. Greater than 200 for example) processing gets stuck in the step "Distributing to streaming server"

Steps to reproduce

Steps to reproduce:
1. Have a media package that has many transitions.
2. Process it using the default workflow
3. Processing gets stuck on the "Distributing to Streaming Server Step"

Actual Results:
Workflow stalls and many distribute jobs are stuck trying over and over again to distribute failing with a 500 error i.e.

2013-01-30 11:34:14 WARN (ServiceRegistryJpaImpl:1410) - Service org.opencastproject.distribution.streaming@http://mhengage1.usask.ca:8080 failed (500) accepting Job {id:7116590, version:7419}

Expected Results:
Would distribute normally, or at least warn that something is wrong.

Workaround (if any):
The original processing has to be stopped and the job table in the database also has to be modified to remove excessive number of retrying jobs. Remove media as a presentation source so that it isn't segmented so that the media is distributed normally which might mean you lose the camera feed.
