> We have encountered a NullPointerException when we use MapWritable with custom Writable
> The root cause is the counter newClasses in AbstractMapWritable is allowed to get out
of sync with the id to class mapping tables when addToMap(Class) is called.  We have a patch
to AbstractMapWritable.addToMap(Class) that handles the case when newClasses gets out of sync
with the id to class mapping tables and adds a serialization optimization to minimize the
number of class names to write out per MapWritable object.
