It's just easier that way. I don't have to link in any hadoop libraries or bring in any other hadoop related code. It keeps the two environments fundamentally separated. I suppose I could wrap hadoop into the exterior code, but I do kinda like the idea of keeping my various worlds separate. I'll consider it, but I don't really like the idea. I don't want the program to be very dependent on hadoop. Simply removing a call to execing it is a lot easier than gutting hadoop code and linked .jars.
I'll take a look at it, maybe there's a way to do that with relative ease.

Mine is sporadic and I suspect dependent on the current memory situation (it isn't a deterministic and guaranteed failure). I am not sure if that is true of the stackoverflow question you referenced...but it is certainly worth reading over.
