seg fault in H5T.c

I'm in the process of migrating from Solaris x86 to RHEL7 and am having issues reading (on RHEL) one particular data set that was written on the Solaris platform. The Solaris HDF5 release is 1.8.9, and RHEL is 1.8.12. I have not tried newer versions of HDF5 as 1.8.12 is what RHEL pre-packages and I'd prefer not to have to do manual builds.

The debugger says:
Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

The same file can be processed without incident with the same application on Solaris. The dataset in question is being created using the high level tables API and a compound data type. I can provide a trace file or other debugging information to help resolve this issue. It didn't seem like a good idea to post files to the mailing list.

Any help would be appreciated.
