Request timeout encountered for request causes pipeline to fail

I'm running a pipeline to parse a VCF. At the very end of this pipeline, a failure mode is triggered:

```

return self.scan_once(s, idx=_w(s, idx).end())
simplejson.errors.JSONDecodeError: Expecting value: line 1 column 1 (char 0)
```

It's not totally clear to me what this error is, or how to resolve it. Is it related to my WDL, or is the issue broader?
