Re: persistent under-replicated blocks
Hm, I had hoped this would have been fixed in hdfs 2.  I have a script that
I run several times per day that identifies under replicated blocks and
increases the replication factor by 1.  It then reduces the replication
factor back to normal.

I can dig up a link if you need it.
