Is it possible to have true "drop in" node replacements?  For example, I have a cluster of 51 Cassandra nodes, 17 in each data center.  I had one host go down on DC3, and when it came back up, it joined the ring, etc., but was not receiving any data.  Even after multiple restarts and forcing a repair on the entire fleet, it still holds maybe ~30MB on a cluster that is absorbing ~1.2TB a day.

What version of Cassandra? Real hardware/network or virtual?
