simple script generating 'too many counters' error
I'm running a simple script to add a sequence_number to a relation, sort
the result and store to a file:

a0 = load '<filename>' using PigStorage('\t','-schema');
a1 = rank a0;
a2 = foreach a1 generate col1 .. col16 , rank_a0 as sequence_number;
a3 = order a2 by  sequence_number;
store a3 into 'outputfile' using PigStorage('\t','-schema');

I get the following error:
org.apache.hadoop.mapreduce.counters.LimitExceededException: Too many
counters: 241 max=240

we aren't able to up our counters any higher (policy) and I don't
understand why I should need so many counters for such a simple script
anyway?
running Apache Pig version 0.11.1-SNAPSHOT (r: unknown)

Can someone help?

Thanks,
