order by having no effect?!
Um, this is weird.  It simply isn't modifying the order of the returned rows at all.  I get the same result with no 'order by' clause as with one.  Adding a limit or specifying 'asc' has no effect.  Using 'sort by' also has no effect.  The column used for ordering is type INT.  In the example below, I was hoping to "sort" or "order" the results according to the third column.  Like I said, I also tried adding 'limit 10' and/or 'asc' to the end of the query; they had no effect.  The jobtracker shows a single mapper and a single reducer being used for the job incidentally, so it can't be some sort of multi-reducer sort discrepancy.
