----------------------------------

I haven't noticed this being a problem for me, so no objections from here.

> Once a SEVERE log item is written, Nutch shuts down any fetching forevermore.  This is from the run() method in Fetcher.java:
>     public void run() {
>       synchronized (Fetcher.this) {activeThreads++;} // count threads
>      
>       try {
>         UTF8 key = new UTF8();
>         CrawlDatum datum = new CrawlDatum();
>        
>         while (true) {
>           if (LogFormatter.hasLoggedSevere())     // something bad happened
>             break;                                // exit
>          
> Notice the last 2 lines.  This will prevent Nutch from ever Fetching again once this is hit as LogFormatter is storing this data as a static.
> (Also note that "LogFormatter.hasLoggedSevere()" is also checked in org.apache.nutch.net.URLFilterChecker and will disable this class as well.)
> This must be fixed or Nutch cannot be run as any kind of long-running service.  Furthermore, I believe it is a poor decision to rely on a logging event to determine the state of the application - this could have any number of side-effects that would be extremely difficult to track down.  (As it has already for me.)
