Well, as long as you're willing to help me, ugly is fine :)

After making that change, the server started to process the various
files. The exampls DODS catalog was generated fine, the example
filesystem catalog and my own filesystem catalog both failed with
similar messages. I've appended the results.

I think I'm failing to understand what exactly the serviceName, base and
accessPointHeader are actually used for.

As with regular catalogs, I assume one is used for reconstructing the
URL to the file to be resourced, and the other is used for constructing
the URL to be used in an OpenDAP request, but it's not clear to me
exactly what is happened. I read the documentation, but it was a bit
hand-wavy about the specifics.

Thanks for your help,
