We are testing bulk data loads using thrift.  About 5% of operations are failing on the following exception.  It appears that it is not getting any response (end of file) on the batch mutate response.  I'll try to create a test case to demonstrate the behavior.

Caused by: org.apache.thrift.transport.TTransportException

This is using a 0.7 SNAPSHOT built last friday with a framed transport.
