      Description

      This will cause the same DCHECK to fail as IMPALA-1291, but the cause is different.

      IMPALA-1291 will cause failures if the --read_size impalad flag is set very low (below 100KB, default is 8MB), and will fail consistently over any files that are > 100KB in size.

      This failure occurs if Impala thinks the file is longer than it actually is, e.g., the file was rewritten and "invalidate metadata" was not called. This could appear as sporadic crashes if the workload involves concurrent reads and writes to the same table.

      Here's the stack trace from the DCHECK:
