      Description

      I tried to export .META. table in 0.20.6 and got:

      [hadoop@us01-ciqps1-name01 hbase]$ bin/hbase org.apache.hadoop.hbase.mapreduce.Export .META. h-meta 1 0 0

      Related code is:
      if (keys == null || keys.getFirst() == null ||
      keys.getFirst().length == 0)

      { throw new IOException("Expecting at least one region."); }

      My intention was to save the dangling rows in .META. (for future investigation) which prevented a table from being created.
