People have reported problems with gfortran 4.0.1 before, on the tgtmd
tests (although not this exact one):

The gfortran compiler has had a lot of recent work, and there are much
more up-to-date versions. I have "GNU Fortran 95 (GCC) 4.3.0 20061128
(experimental)", and don't see this test failure. So, you might try
upgrading, and/or swith to g95, which has generally been more stable.

I know it's lame to blame the compiler, but there is at least a
reasonable chance that it's your best shot in this situation.

Maybe gfortran guru's can chime in here, but you may need at least
vesion 4.1 or so.

...good luck...dac
