Yes, the initial load goes in as an insert DELTA too - that requires
another compaction to move into base files.

The fact that they haven't been automatically compacted yet, suggests that
the compactor isn't working for some reason (check hive metastore logs).

The size of deltas shows up as 0, till the compaction goes through - in
Hive2, it will be -1 which will be correctly interpreted as "unknown size".

Clearly an issue due to the lack of compaction - I see a single delta with
255 buckets and no base_* files at all.
