Still having a problem with my Idrisi/NetCDF bug:

Good.  I've been meaning to ask about an updated autotest.

One test I've wondered about - DODS OGR, the test never worked and  
still doesn't.  The error I get isn't very helpful as to why it's  

   TEST: ogr_dods_1 ... ERROR 4: couldn't connect to host
fail (blowup)
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "pymod/gdaltest.py", line 170, in run_tests
     result = func()
   File "./ogr_dods.py", line 71, in ogr_dods_1
     gdaltest.dods_ds = ogr.Open( 'DODS:http://www.epic.noaa.gov: 
10100/dods/wod2001/natl_prof_bot.cdp?&_id=1' )
   File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.4/lib/ 
python2.4/site-packages/ogr.py", line 338, in Open
     raise OGRError, 'Unable to open: ' + filename
OGRError: Unable to open: DODS:http://www.epic.noaa.gov:10100/dods/ 

"Unable to open" doesn't really tell me if the NOAA server is not  
responding or my DAP library is broken or the OGR DODS driver is  
broken.  Previously I used DAP 3.6.2, updated to 3.7.3 now, same  
problem on both.

The GDAL DODS driver seems to be working - I get a warning about no  
DAP 3 version, but it says it succeeds.
