Re: GCC 4.0.3 in FC 4



In particular, 26074, as discussed in this thread:

http://gcc.gnu.org/ml/fortran/2006-02/msg00014.html

and the following bug:
http://gcc.gnu.org/ml/fortran/2006-02/msg00019.html

which according to GCC developers was already fixed in 4.0.x, but
fedora does not work on this.
