The bug in [^] is certainly wrong and should be fixed as described, but that is not really the underlying problem of this ParaView bug. I believe the real problem occurs in vtkFileSeriesReader. That meta-reader is constructing a RequestInformation that does not have the output dataset the netCDF reader is expecting. Although the netCDF reader should be hard enough to not break under this condition, the file series reader should avoid these malformed requests.

I have attached a patch for vtkFileSeriesReader (created from the git format-patch command) that should fix the problem on that side.

I merged in the fix for the symptom in netcdf reader.
