Cygwin HDF5 load() crash fix

This is a workaround for GNU Octave seg fault

Warning! HDF5 library version mismatched error

To avoid having to recompile Octave (which is what will really fix the error)

HDF5_DISABLE_VERSION_CHECK=1 octave

Persistent fix

Add to ~/.bashrc:

alias octave="HDF5_DISABLE_VERSION_CHECK=1 octave -q"
