 You'll find lots of these rough edges through hadoop, it is not a user firendly, out-of-the-box
enterprise-ready product.

It's capital.

You know, when I built my Archive cluster, I fought this for two hours, figuring something

It's kind of an embarrassing bug, first-semester Java students know how to work around it
(believe me, I've only taken one semester of Java!)
