[netCDF #UDV-137150]: NetCDF 4.1.1: "ncdump -c" gives error, whereas "ncdump" doesn't

Hi Filipe,

> I have investigated this to no avail. When parsing the attached (really
> small) file with "ncdump -c", the application aborts with the following
> message:
> "ncdump: NetCDF: Invalid dimension ID or name"
> However, if I parse it with "ncdump" (without -c), it finishes without
> error.
> I have inspected the file with h5dump and I can't find any reason for this.
> Maybe someone can help me out.
> Interestingly, the error disappears if I remove any one of the dimensions
> (the one in group1 or the one in group2).

Thanks for reporting this bug.  It was a problem with ncdump identifying 
coordinate variables in subgroups, which our tests weren't comprehensive
enough to catch.  I've fixed it in our test version, and it will be available
in the daily snapshot soon.  If you need the fix sooner than that, please let 
me know.
