[netCDF #JNH-860762]: Problems with CDL/vlen example

Hi Lynton,

> Dear Sylwester and Russ,

> Russ is there any news on this?

Yes, there is as of this afternoon.  The bug that was holding things up
appears to have been fixed with changes to netCDF-4 or HDF5.  I say "or",
because at this point, it's difficult to determine whether the fix was in
the upgrade from HDF5 1.8.8 to 1.8.9 or the netCDF-4 upgrade from 4.1.3
to 4.2.0, but it works now with the combination netCDF-4 version
and HDF5 version 1.8.9.  The details are in this Jira issue description
and comments:


Please try compiling and linking against the new versions and verify whether
you agree that the bug that was blocking release of your new version of the
netCDF-4 C++ release is now fixed.  I'm hoping no new bugs affecting that 
code have been introduced ...
