Comment(by pv):

 Thanks for the GDB traceback. However, it still does not tell where the
 crash occurred -- this apparently would need stepping through the program
 with 'n' or 's'.

 However, I guess this bug is connected to the failures observed on
 Gfortran 4.6 -- getting funny things with 4.2 is also expected. Works on
 4.4 - 4.5 though, but probably there's something rotten in the code to
 begin with to cause such compiler-dependence. Locating this with gdb is
 probably not so easy.

 (Tracing this bug this way via Trac seems a bit inefficient. I don't have
 a OSX at hand, so I can't test this directly. I can try to see if I manage
 to get it with Gcc 4.2 (and 4.6) on Linux.)
