[netCDF #BPK-422270]: Name contains illegal characters

The problem is those '/' (forward slash)
characters in names. In netcdf-c, they
are strictly illegal.

In netcdf-Java, if a flag is set, which it is by
default, an attempt is made to interpret those
slashes as group indicators.

There is currently no plan to add similar group
support in netcdf-c
because currently only netcdf-3 (classic format)
is supported for dods requests and it does not
support groups. This will eventually
change when the new DAP4 protocol is supported.

I can however make a change so those slashes
are converted to an escaped format. But this may not
get you what you want.

I have setup a bug tracking issue:
