The data was orginally created on a 1.1.2 cluster with STCS (i.e. NOT
leveled compaction).
After the upgrade to 1.1.4 we changed from STCS to LCS w/o problems.
Then we ran more tests and created more and very big keys with millions of
The assertion only shows up with one particular CF containing these big
So, from your explanation, I don't think an offline scrub will help.
