The reports I am getting on this list and in #cassandra about the newly
re-written repair in 2.0.x line, with vnodes on a real sized data set, is
that it often does not work, and if it does work, not in tractable time. As
other posters have said, it is continually being fixed and improved. If I
were you, I would consider increasing gc_grace_seconds to something like 34
days until repair starts working more efficiently with vnodes.
