Actually, as a result of more careful testing, that's wrong.  Version 3.5.1 had 
bug, and as far as I can tell now, no version of netCDF has ever handled large
block sizes, such as Lustre uses, correctly.  It looks like there's no shortcut
to fixing this, it will require understanding the optimized buffering code ...
