-----------------------------------

You're welcome, Owen!   (I wrote the roulette selection patch.)

> When mapred.local.dir is used to specify multiple  temp dir. areas, space allocation
limited by smallest area because the temp dir. selection algorithm is "round robin starting
from a randomish point".   When round robin is used with approximately constant sized chunks,
the smallest area runs out of space first, and this is a fatal error. 
> Workaround: only list local fs dirs in mapred.local.dir with similarly-sized available
areas.
> I wrote a patch to JobConf (currenly being tested) which uses df to check available space
(once a minute or less often) and then uses an efficient roulette selection to do allocation
weighted by magnitude of available space.
