Yes, I was able to repro it, but only on clusters with LDAP enabled.
I found this issue by looking at the thread stacks during the hang. The repro steps are:
 - Connect with "impala-shell -l -u <user> --ssl"
 - Give an incorrect LDAP password
 - Open another terminal and try to open impala-shell, and it hangs (until you kill the impala-shell
on the first terminal)

When you give an incorrect LDAP password, you get the following error in the shell:
"Error connecting: TTransportException, TSocket read 0 bytes"

However, when you try repro-ing with only SSL (and no LDAP), i.e. use a wrong CA cert from
the impala-shell, we get the following error:
"Error connecting: TTransportException, Could not connect to localhost:21000"
and the above hang is not reproducible.

In the LDAP case, it connects to the impalad using SSL and then requests for the LDAP password.
In the only SSL case, it's not even able to connect to the impalad and therefore the hang
doesn't happen.

So since we unfortunately don't have LDAP for our unit testing, we can't include a test for
File shell/
