By returning the DeferredList from next_batch(), you are chaining Deferreds:


If you remove the "return" from next_batch(), the problem disappears. If you 
want to be able to register a callback when all items are processed, it's 
probably better to create a dedicated Deferred for that instead of chaining 
the DeferredLists.
