Re: Pig creates wrong schema after dereferencing nested tuple fields
Try this:

data = LOAD 'test_data.txt' USING PigStorage() AS (f1: int, f2: int, f3:
int, f4: int);

nested = FOREACH data GENERATE f1, (f2, f3, f4) AS nested_tuple;

dereferenced = FOREACH nested GENERATE f1, nested_tuple.(f2, f3) as
tuple_two;
DESCRIBE dereferenced;

uses_dereferenced = FOREACH dereferenced GENERATE nested_tuple.(f3) as f3;
DESCRIBE uses_dereferenced;
I find explicit naming can sometimes fix bugs.
