Hi,

I'm having a problem with doing a multiget_slice on a super column family after its first flush. Updates to the column values work properly, but trying to retrieve the updated values using a multiget_slice operation fail to get the updated values. Instead they return the values from before the flush. I've seen this problem in Cassandra v1.0.0 and v1.0.1. The problem is not present in Cassandra v0.7.6.

Steps to reproduce:
  1. Create one or more super column entries
  2. Verify the sub column values can be updated and that you can retrieve the new values
  3. Use nodetool to flush the column family or restart cassandra
  4. Update the sub column values
  5. Verify they have been updated using cassandra-cli
  6. Verify you DO NOT get the updated values when doing a multiget_slice; instead you get the old values from before the flush
You can get the most recent value by doing a flush followed by a major compaction. However, future updates are not retrieved properly either. 

With debug turned on, it looks like the multiget_slice query uses the following command/consistency level:
SliceByNamesReadCommand(table='test_cassandra', key=666f6f, columnParent='QueryPath(columnFamilyName='test', superColumnName='null', columnName='null')', columns=[foo,])/QUORUM.

Cassandra-cli uses the following command/consistency level for a get_slice:
SliceFromReadCommand(table='test_cassandra', key='666f6f', column_parent='QueryPath(columnFamilyName='test', superColumnName='null', columnName='null')', start='', finish='', reversed=false, count=1000000)/QUORUM

Notice the test program gets 'bar2' for the column values and cassandra-cli gets 'bar3' for the column values:
