Bug Description

The boot speed testing harness imports each time a daily ISO is available. After working properly for a yet-to-be-determined time the imports don't work properly.

When a mounted ISO is imported (using the import command) it appears to complete correctly without error. The distro and profile are created. But, the kernel and initrd files stopping being copied to the images/ dir. When a system is PXE booted it can not find the image files and PXE loops trying to find the files.

There are no errors in the cobbler log.

Once the cobbler service is restarted the imports work correctly until the same issue reoccurs.
