Bulk Query results - InternalServerError

Sometimes when retrieving Bulk query results, the query completes successfully and I can pull back some of the results files but for others I just get an XML file with this error info:

<exceptionMessage>Error while getting query result</exceptionMessage>

Anyone know what might cause this?

This could just be due to the request taking too long with the salesforce servers. Are you still facing this issue?
Yes we still see it quite often. If we retry later it usually works so it is not a major issue.

Do you think this could be due to throttling? Should we avoid doing several requests together?
