[netCDF #TPI-957404]: bug report

Hi Mark,

Yes, sorry, it's a bug in 4.1.3.  Please remove the line.  It has already been 
removed from the latest Fortran release, now
a separate source distribution, as announced here:


I don't think we previously knew this caused segfaults, so I've added an entry 
about the bug in our "Known Problems" page 
for 4.1.3:


Thanks for reporting the problem!
