Hive - create table during insert

Hive hangs wit no response when create table statement is issued during an insert into another table. 

I assume this is because the insert is creating dynamic partitons, so somehow the metadata or schema is locked.

After the kill of the insert statement the create table worked.

 

Is this a bug or a feature?

Thanks

Tomas.
