Bob, My apologies for taking so long to respond to your report. I agree that this should issue an error, but given that the logic behind the aggregations isn't particularly sophisticated, I'm not surprised there's not. I've opened a ticket on this: https://github.com/Unidata/thredds/issues/168 I'm curious if the FMRC support could be used in this case to handle combining the files, but I haven't had time to test this yet. Thanks for taking the time to report this.
