>             Project: Hadoop Map/Reduce
>          Issue Type: Bug

> When forcing multiple reduce tasks to be launched by applying the setNumReduceTasks()
method on a Job object, and
> running on input data which has one significantly longer map (and consequently reduce)
> - a speculative reduce task was not launched, even with a longer running reducer only
4 reduce tasks were launched
> - the spec launch of map tasks was inhibited by the setNumReduceTasks() method applied,
so even with
> -Dmapreduce.job.maps.speculative.execution=true we only had 4 map tasks launched. The
exact same code with the
> setNumReduceTasks() method taken out, and on the same input data set, consistently launched
5 mappers as expected.
> Testing info:
> 3. modified WordCount to force 4 reducers being launched, by adding:
>     job.setNumReduceTasks(4); // hardwire 4 reducers for now
>     System.out.println("\nTESTDEBUG: using 4 reduce tasks for now\n\n");
> to the Job object. This causes 4 reduce tasks to be launched, oddly though it inhibits
the map task from speculative
> launch. So the same job code, without the setNumReduceTasks() method, will launch 5 mappers
as described in case #2.
> When this method is added, that same job will only launch 4 mappers, as well as 4 reducers,
otherwise the job
> successfully completes.
