I've tried to reproduce your problem with QGIS 2.0.1, but I'm not able
to download the HDF file.
The FTP server claims to allow anonymous access with an email address as
password, but refuses login when done so.
Is there some HDF file publicly available with which I can reproduce
If you don't mind building QGIS yourself, you can try building QGIS
2.0.1 from the pkg-grass git to see if it fixes your problem:
