[netCDFJava #KDU-752210]: NetcdfDataset converts whole-world grib record to all longitude 180

Hi Edward:

The problem is that the grib record has both begin and end lon = 180. 
Obviously they mean the entire cylinder, and it would be better practice to use 
-180 for the begin lon.
Anyway, ill add a fix to the next release.

thanks for reporting this problem.
