downgraded to sid versions... verified that it still happens, fired up
reportbug and then saw:

Bugs with severity normal
   6) #644994  segfault while using h5dump in /usr/lib/libhdf5.so.6

the one I (apparently) filed on 11 Oct 2011 and for which there is a mighty
workaround -- to specify "-w 65535" (thanks Sylvestre again).   Since it is
already a year since then, I obviously forgotten this important
workaround ;-)  

Feel free to raise a severity/fix it.  most probably the fix is somewhere
among commits upstream since fixed in experimental.
