Process of elimination, or divide and conquer.  Disable all minus 1 or 1/2 of 
your catalogs in the App Manager.  Does a refresh succeed?  Re-enable or 
disable more catalogs as required to until you narrow the offending catalog 
that causes a failure to refresh.

Disclaimer... I'm running OS2008, and not sure if you can disable catalogs in 

Good Luck!  Steve
