The problem turned out to be that you cannot specify the master zookeeper
ensemble in a zoo.cfg file (very useful if you colocate HBase and
zookeeper) because the replication setup code is borked (the zoo.cfg config
overrides the hack done in the code to create a config object equivalent to
the master one with the remote ensemble).
Once you specify the ensemble in hbase-site.xml everything works as it
