Query doesn't filter UDF result as expected
Hive is not filtering on the result of a UDF in the way I expect or desire it to.  The example below shows a very small sample table.  The nested query that follows the table dump attempts to filter the results on the basis of a row_number UDF.  The thing to note is that in the query results, 'rn' increments steadily from 1 to 15.  Next, note that the last clause of the query intended to filter the result to only those result rows where 'rn' equals 1.  In other words, I expected the query to only return the first result row.  What am I missing?  Thanks.
