Re: Impala crashes / C [ 0x1231c0] __nss_hosts_lookup 0xfa80

It looks like you may have hit a bug. To help us debug this problem and
also understand if this is a know issue could you please provide:

* The full impalad logs for the node that crashed
* The file
* The query that caused the crash
* A "DESCRIBE FORMATTED" of the target table(s)

Also, does this cause multiple impalad instances to go down or just a
single instance? Does this problem reproduce 100% of time time or does it
just happen occasionally?
