Thanks, updated version attached.

I'm not sure if this is the proper thing to do. I guess one problem
would be that such a check in resolve_symbol would also be triggered
by the auto_char_len_{1,2} cases (if it's only based on the EXTERNAL
declaration and not the actual implementation).

I think we should rather do a better correctness-checking of the
interface for global procedures. In fact there already is a check for
the char-len, but it only handles constant lengths. I have now
replaced this by an improved check, which also check constant vs
variable lengths (stolen from "check_result_characteristics" in
interface.c), and this in fact rejects auto_char_len_4.f90.

The new patch regtests cleanly, and I hope it is ok for trunk now(?).

[Btw, I also thought about doing a full "gfc_compare_interfaces" in
"resolve_global_procedure", but that would probably be too strict.]
