Ed:  The attached C program creates a netcdf4_classic file that is

Thanks Jeff!

This is not an ncdump bug; nc_open fails on this file!

I have added it to the netCDF-4 tests and will let you know when I get
it solved...

Thanks,

Ed

OK Ed - thanks for looking into it. I'm running into another potential bug, probably in the HDF5 lib. I get

H5Oalloc.c:1350: failed assertion `oh->chunk[curr_msg->chunkno].gap == 0'
Abort

when trying to rename a variable in my python script. Haven't been able to trigger the error in a equivalent C program yet, but if I do I'll forward it.
