Subject Data loss

I have a very small table under HBase that I use to store control data of my
program. If HBase crashes and I have to kill it, the table goes away.
However, I can still see the table inside HDFS.

What is more interesting is that if I stop HBase properly, the table seems
to be persisted and I don't lose it anymore as consequence of a crash.

Because the table is very small, I think it's not being flushed to HDFS (the
table itself or/and the meta info). I try to flush everything with
HTable#flushCommits and HBaseAdmin#flush with no success. Does anybody has
already gone through it? How can a flush EVERYTHING to HDFS so I won't lose
data as consequence of a kill -9? Any special configuration inside

I'm using HBase 0.20.0 RC2 together with Hadoop 0.20.0.
