Problem with ifort 2017 and 2018

Dear colleague,

I am encountering a problem with the IFORT 2018 compiler when I run the attached program (that has been extracted from a much more sophisticated project). The array named Kinetic is incorrectly filled. The bug is fixed if I simply add write(*,*) px,py before the calculation of Kinetic(k) in the loop. This is not the case with the 2016 version of the compiler and I absolutely not understand what has become wrong. Such behavior has been highlighted on Mac OS 10.13 and Linux platforms. 

Many thanks for your help. Sincerely, O. Juillet.

The newer ifort (v17, 18 , 19

The newer ifort (v17, 18 , 19) is too aggressively optimizing expressions away from your do loop. If you compile with -O0 or -O1 you get the expected result. Default is -O2. If I rewrite your do loop in a way that expressions only depending on the outer increment are calculated outside of the inner do loop, then also ifort 17, 18, 19 get it correct with default optimization:

DO kx=0,Dx-1
   IF (kx<=ZDBx_Max) THEN
      lx=kx
   ELSE
      lx=kx-Dx
   END IF
   px=2.0_8*Pi*lx/Dx   
   DO ky=0,Dy-1              
      IF (ky<=ZDBy_Max) THEN
         ly=ky
      ELSE
         ly=ky-Dy
      END IF
      py=2.0_8*Pi*ly/Dy
      ! print *, "k = ", k
      Kinetic(Dy*kx+ky+1)=-2.0_8*(tx*COS(px)+ty*COS(py))-4.0_8*t_Prime*COS(px)*COS(py)
        
   END DO
END DO
