Package: netcdf-bin
Version: 1:4.1.3-6
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

It appears that nccopy generates bogus (numerically, and structurally).  If 
this is not patched locally to Debian, this should be pushed upstream.  
Resulting files appear to have all missing values for dimension variables, and 
data variables cannot even be read, giving an HDF error (from `ncdump`, and the 
file is unreadable in other NetCDF utilities as well):

NetCDF: HDF error

Thanks James and Paul. I am closing this bug.

Hi Ross,

I've never experienced this problem and cannot reproduce it either, so
feel free to close the bug.

FYI, the NetCDF source contains a variety of source files to use for

hiebert@medusa:~/tmp/netcdf-4.1.3$ find ./ -name "*.nc" | wc -l

Will you have a chance to address this bug while preparing the new
version of netcdf?
