> Hive was only recently changed to allow "drop table dbname.tabname". However DDLTask.dropTable()
is still using an older version of Hive.getPartitionNames(), which only took in a single string
for the table name, rather than the database and table names. As a result Hive is filling
in the current database name as the dbname during the listPartitions call to the MetaStore.
> It also appears that on the Hive Metastore side, in the non-auth path there is no validation
to check that the dbname.tablename actually exists - this call simply returns back an empty
list of partitions, which causes the table to be dropped without checking any of the partition
information. I will open a separate issue for this one.
