What client are you using to access the data? IDV? ToolsUI? Something else? (If 
this last one, does it use the netCDF-java library?)

I'd like you to try two things.

1) Pull the entire netcdf element out of the catalog and store it in a local 
file with a ".ncml" extension. Actually, I'll just attach a file to this 
message. Open the file with the IDV or ToolsUI. If in IDV, choose "Grid files" 
from the "Data Source Type" pull down. If in the ToolsUI, open in the "Grids" 

2) Back to the TDS served catalog. First, make sure the catalog matches the 
dataset ncml that works above. Then send me the response you get to these two 

- http://localhost:8080/thredds/dodsC/valentijnAggOfUNH.dds
- http://localhost:8080/thredds/dodsC/valentijnAggOfUNH.das

Yes, that is the plan for down the road. However, the aggregation scan is the 
part we've talked about before that does not use the CrawlableDataset code. It 
uses some seperate file-only code for scanning. It is on our list to change 
this to use the CrawlableDataset code but it is not there yet.
