> I've noticed that when we do a DROP TABLE tablename PURGE on a table on S3A that has
many files, the files never get deleted. However, the Hive metastore logs do say that the
path was deleted:
> "Not moving [path] to trash"
> "Deleted the diretory [path]"
> I initially thought that this was due to the eventually consistent nature of S3 for deletes,
however, a week later, the files still exist.
