Dear All,

The title of this problem describes the problem clearly.  It comes
about only for scalar character transfers where the source is shorter
than the destination.  As described in the PR, the solution is to make
a temporary, with the length of the destination and only copy the
source into it.  All this was effected by use of the mechanics evolved
for array transfers, where the different situations of source versus
destination lengths and the presence of SIZE were correctly (I hope!)
treated.  The use of packing of the source has been eliminated, except
for variables that are not full arrays.

Bootstrapped and regtested on FC9/x86_i64 - OK for 4.5 and, eventually, for 4.4?
