[R] RHive and compression

Hi all,

If I run the following command in hive shell, I can get a compressed
output(e.g. 000000_0.gz) in HDFS because I already changed Hadoop and Hive
configuration files to achieve this.

insert overwrite directory '/testdata' select * from tbl;

However, if I run the same command using RHive like the below, the output
is not compressed(e.g. 000000_0).

rhive.query("insert overwrite directory '/testdata' select * from tbl")

It seems that RHive failed to read configuration files even though I set
HADOOP_CONF_DIR. Could anybody tell me what I am missing? Thank you in
