Subject Re: HBase filtered scan problem

Thank you for your answer St. Ack.
Yes, both coordinates are the same. It is impossible for the filter to 
decide that a value is old. I still don't understand why the HBase 
server has both values or how long does it keep both. The same thing 
happens if puts have different timestamps.
