A simple estimate puts the total number of blocks somewhere around 500,000.
Due to an HBase bug (HBASE-9648), there were approximately 50,000,000 files
that were created and quickly deleted (about 10/sec for 6 weeks) in the
cluster, and that activity is what is contained in the edits.

Since those files don't exist (quickly created and deleted), shouldn't they
be inconsequential to the memory requirements of the namenode as it starts
