>                 URL:
>             Project: Beam
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: runner-spark
>    Affects Versions: 0.4.0-incubating
>            Reporter: Ryan Skraba
>            Assignee: Jean-Baptiste Onofré
> The SparkRunner keeps track of "leaf" transforms in the job graph and ensures that they
have been executed when the pipeline is run.
> However, when a PCollection is used as a sideInput, it is evaluated *once* to get the
materialized values but is still considered a leaf node.  It is evaluated a second time at
the end of the Spark job, which is unnecessary (and can cause unexpected behaviour).
> One of the symptoms of this bug is that `Sink`s will create spurious writers that execute,
but are never finalized.  Specifically the HDFSFileSink will _always_ die with a `Writer results
and output files do not match` error.
