Please check the hdf5 package version numbers are the current one.

Does the file contain text strings?  If so there has been a known problem 
with hdf5 crashes and a recent update of hdf5 (which I do not know for 
sure whether it fixes the problem or not).  This manifested itself as 
crashes on some machines and not others.
