Note that in the /vsicurl/ case, the file gets opened by the HDF5Image driver 
whereas in the non vsicurl case, by the netCDF driver, hence the difference.
A recent enough version (4.5 I believe) of libnetcdf must be used so that /
vsicurl/ can be used by the netCDF driver (you must see 'NetCDF has 
netcdf_mem.h: yes' in configure output)
