[netCDF #FIL-651276]: netcdf-c-4.3.1-rc2 ncdump test failures


> I built netcdf-c-4.3.1 from the latest release candidate 2 against 
> hdf5-1.8.11, 64bit, compiled by the sysadmins of the HPC I am using (IBM 
> Power6). Unfortunately, make check fails in directory ncdump for 5 tests, and 
> I think they are all related to scalar variables/dataspaces in NetCDF4 files.

I see you are enabling many options for configure:

>  $ ./configure --prefix=/pf/k/k203080/3rdparty --enable-netcdf4 
> --enable-extra-example-tests --enable-dependency-tracking 
> --enable-dap-long-tests --enable-extra-tests --enable-large-file-tests 
> --enable-shared --enable-static

We don't test releases with all combinations of configure options
enabled.  The default configure will run the tests we use for
development.  It will also build a library with netCDF-4 enabled (if
an HDF5 library is found installed where CPPFLAGS and LDFLAGS), with
DAP remote access enabled (if libcurl is installed), and with shared
and static libraries.  The --enable-dap-long-tests and
--enable-extra-example-tests are intended for developers, and may
sometimes include tests that don't yet pass on all platforms,
especially in release candidates.

We don't know yet.  All the ncdump tests pass on our test platforms, including 
Solaris, OSX, and Windows, but we don't have access to an up-to-date AIX 
platform on
which we can duplicate the problems you are seeing.

Thanks for reporting the problems!  If we can reproduce them, we'll put them in 
bug-tracking system for fixing.
