then there seems to be some small problems with the Splitter / InputFormat.
I'm just reading a 1-line text file through pig:
A = LOAD 'myinput.txt' ;
supposedly it should generate at most 1 mapper.
but in reality , it seems that pig generated 3 mappers, and basically fed
empty input to 2 of the mappers
