It is hard to know for use without the data.

I do know that there are HDF4 and HDF5 data products that GDAL cannot
read - either because it is not of 2+ dimensions (and so treatable
as image data) or because it is formatted in some fashion not
recognised by GDAL.  But even in these situations it is not acceptable
for the driver to crash the application.

So I would encourage you to file a ticket explaining the problem you
are encountering, and attach or point to the problem dataset(s).
