> If the thrift metastore service is running as the user "hive" then all table directories
as a result of create table are created as that user rather than the user who actually issued
the create table command. This is different semantically from non-thrift mode (i.e. local
mode) when clients directly connect to the metastore. In the latter case, directories are
created as the real user. The thrift mode should do the same.
