Hi folks 
  I got some reports that nxbrowse and nxdir do not work with the Nexus
files we produce here at DESY. I can confirm this on my Debian system
where libnexus0 is installed in version 4.2.1. 

I suspect that this still has a problem that we are using variable
length strings and thus cannot read attribute data correctly. I have
attached a file for testing. By the way can someone may have a look at
the file if we got it at least a bit right ;)

@Benjamin - this file does not collect non-standard fields into
NXcollection as we discussed in Warwick. However, our new setups do. I
am still working on the draft for a kind of 'best-practice' paper and I
hope I can submit it to this mailing list this week.
