The issue is present in 4.3.1-rc5, but not in 4.3.1-rc4. The only relevant
release note I see is "When opening a netCDF-4 file, streamline the
iteration over objects in the underlying HDF5 file."

I found a 2M file that shows the same problem - see

3 second ncdump with rc4 vs almost 2 minute ncdump with rc5.
