>Before commit, could someone please test to make sure that "ant -Dtestcase=TestKerberosAuthenticationHandler

With ant version 1.8.2 the above command runs the test, but with ant 1.7.1 it doesn't. I suspect ant-1.8.2 is just ignoring @Ignore.
Given the above observation, do you think @Ignore is not acceptable for 205? Alternative approach is to commit this patch as there are many tests in mapreduce that use the same approach, and come with a better fix in 206?
