A crash with an import statement always points to an installation bug.

Statistically, most such problems somehow concern netCDF, which could 
be incompletely installed, or multiple installations could cause 

The second most frequent cause is a confusion due to multiple Python 
versions installed on the same machine.

The most thorogh solution is to redo the installation of all required 
items from source code. I have never seen this fail on any machine.
