I got this unhandled exception today:

Unhandled exception occured while syncing skola.ics.
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/vdirsyncer/", line 393, in sync_collection

    r = adapter.send(request, **kwargs)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/requests/", line 375, in send
    raise ConnectionError(e, request=request)
ConnectionError: HTTPSConnectionPool(host='x.y.z', port=443): Max retries exceeded with url: /user/skola.ics/ (Caused by ProtocolError('Connection aborted.', gaierror(-2, 'Name or service not known')))
Job 'vdirsyncer --verbosity WARNING sync' terminated (exit status: 1) (mailing output)

I don't know what happened, because i cannot reproduce it now, but despite it, IMO this exception need to be handled and synchronization must continue with other items, nod end here.

The "skola.ics" is a singlefile type.

This is intended behavior, i found it useful when debugging. It doesn't make sense from a user perspective though, a --fail-fast flag might make sense.

Ah, OK. But perhaps you can consider some as --debug option for this, because it can confuse users as it confused me ;-)
