Subject Re: hadoop or nutch problem?

More observations: during hadoop job running, this "filesystem closed" error
happens consistently.

Could this error turns on the safemode in hadoop? I suspect this because the
next hadoop job is supposed to create a segment directory and write out
segment results, but it does not create the directory.  Anything else could
happen to hdfs?
