      Description

      I've seen reduces getting killed because of a race condition in the ReduceTaskRunner. In the logs it looks like:

      2006-11-27 08:40:44,795 WARN org.apache.hadoop.mapred.TaskRunner: Map output copy stalled on http://kry2296.inktomisearch.com:7030/mapOutput?map=task_0001_m_015626_0

      ...

      2006-11-27 09:16:47,338 INFO org.apache.hadoop.mapred.TaskRunner: task_0001_r_000658_0 done copying task_0001_m_015462_0 output from node1

      Basically, the handling of the stall has a race condition that leaves the fetcher in a bad state. At the end of the fetch, all of the tasks finish and their results never get handled. When the thread times out, all of the map output copiers are waiting for things to fetch and the prepare thread is waiting for results.
