May be relevant?

What RF is this cluster? Given beta and cluster size and data size
this small, I would probably just dump and reload instead of trying to
make shuffle work.

It will perhaps be some consolation to hear that this insane
misfeature of automatic token assignment by range bisection is finally
going away in Cassandra 2.0.

Eric Evans gave a talk at the summit during which he attempted to
communicate that people probably shouldn't use shuffle. Given that he
is the one who wrote the shuffle patch, this seems like a meaningful
data point... :)
