I don't know about trunkg but as far as I know Jim Healy had things like
that. I also some time ago had issues with that and found that HDF5 was
caching (HDF5) metadata. There should be code in trunk by now that
disables caching though. So my first try would be to disable all HDF5
output (maybe excluding checkpoints if you only write a single one).
