Doug Cutting commented on HADOOP-3443:

> Should this be fixed in 0.17? 

Is it a regression?

> If a map finishes with out having to spill its data buffer, the map outputs are sorted
and written to disk. However, no care is taken to make sure that the same partition is used
to write it out before it is renamed. On nodes with multiple disks assigned to the task trackers,
this will likely cause an addition read/write cycle to disk that is very expensive.
