OK, that's definitely an interesting part of the story. Although we think
that 4k strings should be OK, the testing in this kind of workload has not
been as extensive.

If you are able to share the Parquet file and "create table" command for
the dataset off-list, that would be great. I'll keep it only within our
datacenter and delete it when done debugging.

Thanks, that would be great if the larger dataset can't be shared.
