      Description

      In hbase shell. These commands hang:

      create 'hbase.version','foo'
      create 'splitlog','foo'
      

      Interestingly

      create 'hbase.id','foo'
      create existingtablename, 'foo'
      create '.META.','foo'
      create '-ROOT-','foo'
      

      are properly rejected.

      We should probably either rename to make the files illegal table names (hbase.version to .hbase.version and splitlog to .splitlog) or we could add more special cases.
