I am fairly certain that Corinna would want to keep any correspondence

Also, in case it isn't clear, Cygwin malloc is just Doug Lea's version
of malloc v2.8.3 with very few changes.


Since I'm currently building gcc4 to check out some autogen-vs-fixinc changes, I'll build fortran as well and take a look at the testcase too. I'd guess that's it's probably a libgfortran problem, since it affects both cygwin *and* mingw, but I'll take a look at it under a debugger and see if I can help.

Thanks Dave,

I think it is in libgfortran as well. I am still hunting. I believe it is specific to internal units. In other words, writing to a character string. I eliminated all other IO operations from the test case and it fails on some sort of memory allocation.
