The fact that the Exception message includes a Bus Error is
a sign that this was a bug in Java, rather than in VisAD.

Like Curtis, I was also able to display your file in the
SpreadSheet with no Exception.  I have seen weird bugs running
Java with native threads, so you might try the Reference
Release instead (runs with green threads).  Also, often the
same command that failed will work if you run it again. 

Cheers,
Bill
