Hi David,
	Good to hear that you're able to run other Hadoop jobs. So it seems to
be a Giraph-specific problem.

I see references to org.apache.giraph.comm.RPCCommunications in the
above - this class was removed a few months back as part of GIRAPH-200:

(BasicRPCCommunications was also removed as part of this).

So I think your giraph.jar is simply too old to work with your CDH4
Hadoop cluster. This is shown in its trying to use the
org.apache.hadoop.mapreduce.TokenCache class, which was also removed as
part of moving from Hadoop 1 to Hadoop 2 (CDH4 is based on Hadoop 2).
