As I understand it, there a race here where a new Memtable can be 
created before the server is stopped, unless you flush with "nodetool 
drain". This is relevant in some versions of 0.6.x (below 0.6.3? 0.6.4?) 
which will barf and deadlock on a commitlog containing a CF which is not 
(no longer) defined in storage-conf.xml. Versions after that just ignore 
that statement in the commitlog.
