>             Fix For: 0.17.0
>         Attachments: patch-stderr-3089.txt
> Stderr output from a streaming task is not collected until the {{MRErrorThread}} is started
by {{PipeMapRed.startOutputThreads()}}, which is done on the first call to {{map()}} or {{reduce()}}.
> This makes it difficult to debug failures in starting up the task process. It can also
lead to deadlock when a task receives no input keys but produces significant stderr output:
the process will block on writing to stderr, while streaming will block waiting for the process
to exit.
> We should start the {{MRErrorThread}} when the process is forked, and then add the {{reporter}}
later to enable stderr output serve as a keep-alive.
