    Description

      I'm seeing some map tasks in my jobs take 1 minute to commit after they finish the map computation. On the map side, the output looks like this:

      <code>

      </code>

      In the TaskTracker log, it looks like this:

      <code>

      </code>

      Note that the task actually seemed to commit - it didn't get speculatively executed or anything. However, the job wasn't able to continue until this one task was done. Both parties seem to think the channel was closed. How does the channel get closed externally? If closing it from outside is unavoidable, maybe the right thing to do is to set a much lower timeout, because 1 minute delay can be pretty significant for a small job.
