Eli Collins updated HDFS-2966:
------------------------------

    Affects Version/s:     (was: 0.24.0)
                       2.0.0-alpha
        Fix Version/s:     (was: 3.0.0)

I saw this failure on branch-2, merged there.

> I've managed to recreate HDFS-540 and HDFS-2434 by the simple technique of running the
HDFS tests on a desktop with out enough memory for all the programs trying to run. Things
got swapped out and the tests failed as the DN heartbeats didn't come in on time.
> the tests both rely on {{waitForDeletion()}} to block the tests until the delete operation
has completed, but all it does is sleep for the same number of seconds as there are datanodes.
This is too brittle -it may work on a lightly-loaded system, but not on a system under heavy
load where it is taking longer to replicate than expect.
> Immediate fix: double, triple, the sleep time?
> Better fix: have the thread block until all the DN heartbeats have finished.
