OK.  I'll check this out, and make the change.

Yes, it is emin - 1.  Fortran 95 says spacing=b**(e-p), which
can have problems with subnormal number.  gfortran's inline 
version happens to get right.  Fortran 2003 changes this
to spacing b**(max(e-p,emin-1)).  I'll change it to emin1.

It'll have to wait for the allocatable component patch, which I
testing and reading at the moment.
