      Description

      Checkpoints will start to fail and the NameNode will not be able to manually saveNamespace if the following set of steps occurs:

      1. A zero-length file appears in a snapshot
      2. That file is later lengthened to include at least one block
      3. That file is subsequently deleted from the present file system but remains in the snapshot

      More details in the first comment.
