Riak crash on node restarts

Something else I tried to give the cluster more time to settle was to wait
until riak-admin transfers reported no pending transfers between updating
nodes. I've had cases where the transfers didn't complete within at least a
couple of hours of waiting. What would be typical amount of time for
pending transfers to complete?
