It isn't a gfortran policy.  The general GCC policy is that only regression
fixes can/should be backported.  You would need to show that the code in
comment #1 could be compiled with a version of gfortran that is older than
4.1.2 20061115; otherwise, this is simply a bug that finally got fixed.

Additionally, there simply are too few gfortran developers to maintain 3
active branches.  So, we have chosen to concentrate our effort on trunk.
If a patch fixes a regression in 4.2, it may be backported but there is
no guarantee.
