No, it means there is a problem loading the tablet.  The master has
assigned it, and the tablet server is having trouble loading it.

One possible problem is that the files for the tablet are missing.  Another
might be a missing or corrupt recovery log.

These are serious errors.

These should be accompanied by messages about the files in question.

Under heavy load, HDFS read/write errors will bubble up to accumulo, and it
will post these errors.

Have you read the troubleshooting section of the user's manual?  If there
