The problem is use of the ISO 8601 standard and its use of the "T" in the time 
separating the date and time:

  time:units = "seconds since 2008-06-04T00:15:03Z" ;

It works as expected if instead you use the same notation as "ncdump -t" emits, 
doesn't include the "T" separator:

  time:units = "seconds since 2008-06-04 00:15:03Z" ;

The problem with parsing the "T" separator was actually in the CDAT library.  
modified it to accept the "T" separator, so your example now works in the
