Hi Michael:

you need the dimension time to be shared, so change to
     Dimension time = file.addDimension("time", 4, true, false, false);

is there any good reason for a dimension not to be shared?
from a documentation point of view, having two unrelated dimensions with the same name
sounds like a bad thing.

I would reccomend to always make dimensions shared, the only possible exception 
is for char[] lengths.

The reason its there is to support other file formats that often dont share 
dimension, eg HDF.

So use:

public Dimension addDimension(String dimName, int length);

unless its the unlimited dimension, in which case you need the other one.
