SBS2011/Exchange 2010 - ImportMailbox seems stuck

I am trying to import a couple of PSTs in to user mailboxes on Small Business Server 2011/Exchange 2010.

It seems that the import process is hung up.

Get-MailboxImportRequestStatistics shows that the process has been running for over 10 hours to import a roughly 10GB PST file, but it's only 10% complete and only 8 items have been transferred.

The same thing for a 2nd import, 10% complete after over 12 hours, this one says only 1 items transferred.

Nothing obvious in the event logs.
Any ideas?

Thank You

according to this it's fixed by a rollup:

Have you changed the default mailbox maximum size to allow the size of PST you are trying to import?
