[netCDF #WAM-997986]: ncgen fails to create netCDF4-classic output of in.cdl

Hi Charlie,

I'm taking a look at this while Russ works on the other issue you submitted, 
and I have a quick question.  Was there a version where this test worked for 
you?  I've been stepping back through releases and am encountering the same 
issue you've observed.  Assuming that there is a version where it worked, I 
should be able to narrow down what changed and why.  If this is a new test, or 
a test that has never worked, it leads me to believe there is something 
specific to this file causing the problem.  In either case, I'll have a clear 
avenue of investigation to follow :).  Thanks!
