Comment (by zrumford):

 cehoyos, thanks for looking at this quickly

 Yes. This reproduces with master. I used the 20210127 build from

 I am still getting approval from our customer to share the actual file
 that reproduces the issue. I *hope* to be able to send it.

 I found something else which points to what may be an actual root of the
 issue. I noticed that if I execute the repro command (See bottom of this
 post for command) from an ec2 instance, the machine goes unresponsive. It
 all ssh connections are "hung" and no new ones are even collected. Host
 level metrics fortunately continue to populate which allows me to see that
 as of, the read IO is off the charts! See the attached
 image. There are almost a million readops per minute and 40GB of reads per
 minute! Note: CPU and write are all nominal so those are not the
 bottleneck. Last note: The input file is 83MB.

 My guess is that we are doing crazy seeking behavior to try to handle this
