it still does not work, but there is an improvement over 1.0.2. 
currently it looks like this:

  INFO [HintedHandoff:1] 2011-11-15 06:42:59,794 (line 334) Finished hinted handoff of 0 rows 
to endpoint /

but there is lot of data not delivered. forced compaction shows it:

112) Compacting 
  INFO [CompactionExecutor:41] 2011-11-15 07:08:24,034 (line 129) Compacting large row 
system/HintsColumnFamily:0758480e325aa09951c555e1249a69ba (237411479 
bytes) incrementally
  INFO [CompactionExecutor:41] 2011-11-15 07:08:33,418 (line 213) Compacted to 
237,411,643 to 237,411,505 (~99% of original) bytes for 1 keys at 
24.091642MB/s.  Time: 9,398ms.

after node restart it still shows 0 rows delivered. hints should be 
newly written by 1.0.3. i deleted old rows from older versions in hints 
- only 2 tombstones left there before another batch of hints testing.

hints inside are not from supercolumn CF. I remember to have 2 rows in 
HintsColumnFamily, one was successfully delivered and this one seems to 
be stuck. These hints are older than 1 hour.

Did you tested outgoing hints delivery with more than row there? its 
probably 1 key = 1 hints delivery session and if node is back up for 
while then second hints session is created. Try to do your testing with 
about 500k hints with multiple sessions.
