[Users] CarpetIOHDF5 recover failure with manual topology

It seems that there may be multiple issues. The parfile I sent before 
tests for NaNs in grid::x. grid::x is not a checkpointed variable. It 
seems that with manual topology, the grid::x is filled with nans during 
the recover step (the pointer is actually pointing to a new area of 
memory). With standard topology, the array pointer and contents do not 
change on recover. I have also seen NaNs in the recovered variables, but 
this parfile doesn't show that.
