[netCDFJava #QPY-277649]: Times are okay in this NcML only if we rename the time variable. Why?

Hi Rich: We are not seeing this problem. If you still are, let us know. John

> In this zip file:
> https://docs.google.com/open?id=0BzAHlPEEP_ujUFJjTkxBM1VkaTg
> there is a netcdf file and two NcML files  turn the netcdf file into a
> valid discrete sampling geometry time series dataset.
> Both of the NcML read okay in NetCDF tools 4.3 (toolsUI), but the
> modification of the time values for the variable "time" doesn't work
> in "5941_badtimes.ncml".  Instead of the correct values in 1999, we
> get values corresponding to dates in 1858 (it seems the new values we
> specified in the NcML have been ignored).
> If we rename the specification of the "time" variable section of the
> NcML to "time3" and change the "coordinates" attribute of the
> variables to point to "time3" we get the correct dates in 1999
> (5941_goodtimes.ncml".
> Why?
> And why is the "time2" variable still there, even though we said to remove it?
> Thanks,
