Program with format continuation indented with more than one tab
Can you please file it upstream, especially when you already verified it
is present on GCC trunk? That's much better place for tracking the bug,
there are many more fortran hackers watching and working on that bug database.
OK, I've filed it there. The first bug I ran into directed me to report
on the redhat site, so I kept reporting here. Now I understand why my searches
on gfortran never turned up much here.
Should I refile my other bug # 175648?
Yes, please. If it is really serious bug, you can add me to CC, but I prefer
Fortran bugreports going upstream if they aren't Red Hat GCC specific.
