17.07 compiler crash when default initialisation of procedure pointer


17.07 compiler crashes with the code below. Workaround is to initialize the procedure pointer with "=>Null()". Support ticket has been submitted.

Module test
    Module Subroutine bla1()
    End Subroutine
  end Interface
  Procedure(bla1), pointer :: pbla=>bla1
end Module test
Submodule(test) subtest
  Module Procedure bla1
  end Procedure
end Submodule subtest

Indeed this gives an ICE with ifort 17.07. This seems to work at least with ifort 18.0.3 and ifort 19.0.0.

I have encountered a very

I have encountered a very similar problem, which was present in ifort19 beta, and which is not fixed in ifort19 (have not tested it, but was told so by support):

It is essential that (see code below):
(1) character(len=:) is used as type of result.
(2) the abstract interface ifc and the function fun are in a separate module.

I also found out that with integer instead of character(len=:) it works, but with logical it also fails...
All in all, I am a bit surprised that a beta version is made available, but almost no bugs I have reported where fixed (though most were not really serious). But this one is a bit cumbersome to work around (in the end I have copied the few concerned routines into the module where I required them).

module bar

implicit none

public ifc
public fun

   abstract interface
      function ifc() result(x)
         character(len=:), allocatable :: x
      end function ifc
   end interface


   function fun() result(x)
      character(len=:), allocatable :: x
      x = ''
   end function fun

end module bar
module mod

use bar

implicit none

   type, public :: t
      procedure(ifc), nopass, pointer, public :: f => fun
   end type t

end module mod
