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.
