I have a workflow that has multiple start workflows inside (three to be precise).  all are configured to start and the main workflow is instructed to wait for their completion before continuing on.  I am having sporadic events where the main workflow is in progress and the child workflow is highlighted as starting the workflow as below:

So sometimes, the main workflow completes and successfully starts and completes the three inner workflows (in fact it is 90% successful)

But sometimes, the main workflow will stick at "In Progress" and the workflow history will have one of the inner workflows highlighted as the current action (it could be any of the three, it doesn't seem to matter).
