Repair has been re-written in 2.0, because it was broken; that's why you
don't see notes about it being patch fixed in the 1.2 series.

As to the background here, while the tone of the ticket filer in this JIRA
is inappropriate for participation in an open source community, this ticket
briefly (and IMO accurately) summarizes how repair was broken and therefore
why it was re-written in 2.0 :

There are some minor streaming fixes in the 1.2 line which may help your
case, but in any case 1.2.5 has other serious issues; if I were you I would
start by upgrading to 1.2.16.

 The only way we can clear this is to restart cassandra on the node

Your input as an operator is welcome here :

I would appreciate any feedback or advice on this. thanks

Are you sure you actually want/need to run repair as frequently as you
currently are? Reducing the frequency won't make it work any better, but it
will reduce the number of times you have to babysit its failure.
