Sample code that shows this issue:

My code is below. In this example, I create three record: person(3 fileds: First Last Age),
age(Age), extract(First Last). The record "age" has the last filed of "Person", so AddressBook.browseAge()
will be executed successfully. But the record "extract" does not have the last filed of "Person",
so executing AddressBook.browseName() will cause an exception.  
In avro/c, read_record (datum_read.c) loops every write_schema fileds. 
In avro/java, GenericDatumReader.readRecord  loops every read_schema fileds. I think that's
the point.

The above may be correct, the loop is over the read schema (expected) rather than actual.
 However, it works fine if the read schema is at the "end" of the writer schema.

I am not familiar enough with the resolving decoder internals yet to and locate the bug quickly.
 It is cleanly reproducible.
