	FWIW, I ran 2.8.2 last night and it has the same problems.

	Also: the node didn’t die!  Looking through the workspace (so the next run will destroy
them), two sets of logs stand out:




	It looks like my hunch is correct:  RAM in the HDFS unit tests are going through the roof.
 It’s also interesting how MANY log files there are.  Is surefire not picking up that jobs
are dying?  Maybe not if memory is getting tight. 

	Anyway, at the point, branch-2.8 and higher are probably fubar’d. Additionally, I’ve
filed YETUS-561 so that Yetus-controlled Docker containers can have their RAM limits set in
order to prevent more nodes going catatonic.
