Subject Re: task slots problem

This is fine. 40 may be ending, while the next 40 may be starting. The tasks
will run a cleanup operation at their end (and be in such a 'status'),
during which the TaskTracker is allowed to schedule the next wave of maps it
needs. In these moments, it may appear as if 80 concurrent tasks may be
running. You can verify this by looking at the state of the 80 'running'
tasks. 40~ of them would be initializing while 40~ of them would be cleaning

Reducer slots are not abused by the Mappers.
