[netCDF #LBV-326209]: bug with creating variable with an unlimited dimension.


> I had sent a message to the netcdf-group about a crash we were seeing

> The original title of the message I sent was "unlimited dimension and

Thanks for the ncdump output.  In starting to try to reproduce the crash
you're encountering, it looks like you are dealing with truly huge files.
From your netcdfgroup posting, it sounds like you are dealing with 
1048576 times.

In that case, I compute the size of the H variable

        float H(time, lev, lat, lon) ;

to be 1048576*48*91*180*4 bytes, which is about 3.3 TB.  And your file has
10 such 4D variables, so the file size is about 33 TB.  Does the crash you
see occur also with a smaller number of times, or do you only see it with
on the order of a million times?
