Thanks, Joshua! Your workaround got us running locally on Hadoop 1.0.3 without any issues.
Here is a GitHub repository for the source (as well as a pre-built JAR):

Line 624) of (org.apache.hadoop.mapred.TaskTracker.TT_LOG_TMP_DIR,org.apache.hadoop.mapred.TaskTracker.TT_PRIVATE_DIR,
call setPermission(Line 481) to deal with it, setPermission works fine on *nx, however,it
dose not alway works on windows.
> setPermission call setReadable of Java.io.File in the line 498, but according to the
Table1 below provided by oracle,setReadable(false) will always return false on windows, the
same as setExecutable(false).

> is it cause the task tracker "Failed to set permissions" to "ttprivate to 0700"?
> Hadoop 0.20.202 works fine in the same environment.
