If you select multiple files, you will see only one time (the nominal time). 
But if you load the data, you get the multiple times.  Yuan is looking into 
showing all the times.

I'll look into this.  Theoretically, you should be able to open these as Image 
Files (GINI), but it doesn't work.

We still don't support the WXP format for netCDF data.  We are working on 
alternatives to ADDE, but it won't make the 2.8 release.
