[R] hdf5 package

I am having the same issue with the HDF5 package.  I installed the 
latest hdf5 DLLs from HDFGroup.  I also installed the HDFView 
application from the same.  This was all done on Windows.  The example 
in ?hdf5load can be used to test.  The example works fine for saving and 
loading the structure, but the ex1.hdf file file produced is not 
readable by HDFView. 

I have an hdf5 file written on Linux using visitconvert to write a 3D 
file format to hdf5 format.  This file is readable by HDFView on Windows 
but cannot be loaded by hdf5load on Windows.  When attempting to load 
the file, the process apparently goes into a loop producing multiple 
lines of

Processing object: .. ...... which is a Group

and finally ends with

Error: C stack usage is too close to the limit

This can be reproduced by using the data below to create a file named 
test.3D and converting the file to an HDF5 structure using (Linux)

visitconvert test.3D test Silo
and supplying 1 for HDF5 and 0 for Single File at the prompts.
