      Before 0.18, when Datanode restarts, it deletes files under data-dir/tmp directory since these files are not valid anymore. But in 0.18 it moves these files to normal directory incorrectly making them valid blocks. One of the following would work :

      • remove the tmp files during upgrade, or
      • if the files under /tmp are in pre-18 format (i.e. no generation), delete them.

      Currently effect of this bug is that, these files end up failing block verification and eventually get deleted. But cause incorrect over-replication at the namenode before that.

      Also it looks like our policy regd treating files under tmp needs to be defined better. Right now there are probably one or two more bugs with it. Dhruba, please file them if you rememeber.
