Thanks for your help, Gary and Jonathon.

We updated the JVM to get rid of the Value too large exception (which it did -
yay!) and are still running with Cassandra 0.6.2 I have not been able to
duplicate the tight loop problem. 

We did try out the in-progress Cassandra 0.6.3 (off the 0.6 SVN) yesterday but
unfortunately can't tell you if the problem is gone because I am seeing a lot
more timeouts on reads (retrying up to 10 times then quitting) so I haven't been
able to get the database fully populated. I'm trying it again this morning.  If
problems persist with the in-progress version, I'll drop back to 0.6.2 and do
some torture writing and see if the problem truly went away just by updating the

Thanks for all of your suggestions!
