------- Comment #17 from pault at gcc dot gnu dot org  2005-11-22 20:16 -------
I have started to see a light at the end of the tunnel.  Going back to easier
but related things, I have found that this is broken, as is its character
cousin:

    integer, DIMENSION(:), POINTER :: ptr
    allocate (ptr(2))
    ptr = 123
    call a (ptr, 12)
    IF ( .NOT. ASSOCIATED(ptr) ) THEN
        print *, "not associated in MAIN"
    else
        print *, "associated in MAIN    ", size(ptr,1), ptr
    END IF
contains

SUBROUTINE A(p, l)
    integer, DIMENSION(:), POINTER :: p
    integer, DIMENSION(2), target :: t
    t = 456
    IF ( .NOT. ASSOCIATED(p) ) THEN
        p => t
        print *, "not associated in A   ", size(p,1), p
    else
        print *, "associated in A       ", size(p,1), p
        t = 789
        p => t
    END IF
END SUBROUTINE A

end

The subroutine works but the wrong result is returned.  The reason for this is
now abundantly clear, although why it was not so before is not....*sigh*

A pointer array is passed as an array descriptor; this means that the value is
not returned if the association is changed!

I have most of the way cured this, up to backend complaints about violating the
sanctity of pointers (I need to get the PARM_DECL to be of the right type but
have all the indirect referencing sorted out.).
