I do that as well, unfortunately some accounts would never be serviced.

What I've done for now is wrap some exception handling around the account 
checking loop in accounts.AccountSynchronizationMixin.syncrunner, and caused 
those threads to exit upon failure (I think...).

I'd prefer to have them retry later, but I haven't figured out how the 
connection pooling works. The connections seem to be left in a bad state if the 
previous iteration did not successfully connect.
