Hm.. That's not the impression I have from JIRA and the mailing list. My 
impression is that even though 0.12.1 is more robust in some situations, 
the significant changes (checksum filesystem, speculative execution, in 
memory sorting, improved map output handling, etc, etc) made between 
these releases introduced many subtle bugs which only now start coming 
into light.

At the same time, I've had relatively positive experience with 0.11.2 on 
moderately sized clusters (dozen machines). That's why I proposed that 
Nutch should use 0.11.2 for the upcoming release.
