      Description

      When recursively validating field types in HCatBaseStorer#validateSchema(FieldSchema pigField, HCatFieldSchema hcatField, Schema topLevelPigSchema, HCatSchema topLevelHCatSchema) the hcatField parameter will be NULL for some nested fields.

      The easiest way to reproduce this is to add code in this method to throw an exception; then TestHCatLoader will reproduce the issue.
