This is specifically not the case.  The standard says, unconditionally, that
the ALLOCATE statement generates and error with an already allocated array.

I have fixed it for my rellocate on assign patch but a question remains that is
at the core of the original problem:

At trans-array.c:6958
  /* Dummy, use associated and result variables don't need anything special. 
  if (sym->attr.dummy || sym->attr.use_assoc || sym->attr.result)
      gfc_add_init_cleanup (block, gfc_finish_block (&init), NULL_TREE);

ie. deallocation is not done on procedure entry for results.  I believe that
this is incorrect for gfortran's pass by reference handling of function
