[netCDF #ZFB-587742]: Reading variable with strides very slow


On the netcdf-3 vs netcdf-4 issue I can at the moment
only speculate. As a rule, reading small quantities of data
with netcdf-4 is always slower than netcdf-3 because the
underlying HDF5 file format is based on b-trees rather than the
linear disk layout of netcdf-3. Since vars reads a single
element at a time, that overhead can, I suspect, be significant.
I am, however surprised that it is as large as you show.
