It should have picked up a type in the first assignment.  Why it doesn't, I
don't know.  Apparently, the failure is conditional on the facts that A) there
already exists a symbol and B) this symbol doesn't have a type at that point.

I'll look into this in more depth tomorrow.  I remember that last time I
looked into these issues (back before Jakub fixed PR18833), I noticed that the
matching of primaries had been completely reworked in g95, and I can't think
of any other bug relating to that than this one, so this bug might well turn
out to be a snake pit.
