Subject Re: Map Rask has IO exception

Did you mean 0.20.2?
If so then Wow, that is a bit of a stumper.  Line 200 of BZip2Codec.java is the following

196:    public void write(int b) throws IOException {
197:      if (needsReset) {
198:        internalReset();
199:      }
200:      this.output.write(b);
201:   }

So it must be that the output stream itself(this.output) is null (or this is null which would
mean that java itself has something very wrong with it).  So it looks like for some reason
the output stream for the spill file is coming back as null, but if I look at the code for
IFile, where the output stream is created
      this.checksumOut = new IFileOutputStream(out);
      if (codec != null) {
        this.compressor = CodecPool.getCompressor(codec);
        this.compressedOut = codec.createOutputStream(checksumOut, compressor);

I don't see any way that checksumOut could be null.  There may have been some sort of an optimization
with in IFileOutputStream, but I really don't see how.

You might want to look at how full the disks are on the nodes that it is failing on.  You
might also want to check to see if any records were output by these mappers at all, because
this is failing on close, and it would be very interesting to see if anything else was output
to the IFile before this?

Any ideas as to where to start diagnosing the problem
