Thanks, Jonathan 

I'm using 0.6.1
And another thing is that I get lots of zero-sized tmp files in the data directory.
When I restarted cassandra those tmp files will be deleted then new empty tmp files will be generated gradually, while still lots of UTFDataFormatException in the system.log

Using 0.6.2 and DiskAccessMode=standard will skip corrupted rows?

If you're on a version earlier than 0.6.1, you might be running into  Upgrading will
fix it, you don't need to reload data.

It's also worth trying 0.6.2 and DiskAccessMode=standard, in case
you've found another similar bug.
