INDEPENDENT_IO vs COLLECTIVE_IO in H5Part, good point. A couple
of weeks ago a college found a bug in H5Part concerning
COLLECTIVE_IO (or we understand something completely wrong): The
H5FD_MPIO_COLLECTIVE property is added to the property list
f->xfer_prop, but this property list is not used in I/O calls.
Thus we are using independent I/O. It's the same in version 1.0!
John (Shalf), any idea/comments about this?

returns an error, if the step exists.
