RESHAPE seg faults with -openmp

I am having a memory issue using RESHAPE in Fortran 90. The program faults when -openmp is used, but only for relatively large arrays--I've chosen 1000x1000 as an example. The program runs fine if RESHAPE is not called, with or without -openmp. I have two questions:
1) Why does this happen? 
2) Why does the traceback not point to the line with RESHAPE? Usually the traceback feature is pretty good at pinpointing the line.
<pre class="brush:fortran">
program main
   integer, parameter :: REAL_KIND = 8
   integer, parameter :: n1 = 1000
   integer, parameter :: n2 = 1000
   real(kind=REAL_KIND) :: x(n1*n2)
   real(kind=REAL_KIND) :: xx(n1,n2)
   print *, 'Before RESHAPE in main'
   x = 0.0
   xx= reshape(xx,(/n1,n2/))
   print *, 'Success in main'
end program main
Scenario 1:
>> ifort -O0 -xHost -traceback -check bounds -check uninit -r8 -implicitnone -c main.f90
>> ifort -O0 -xHost -traceback -check bounds -check uninit -r8 -implicitnone -o exec main.o
>> ./exec
Before RESHAPE in main
Success in main 
Scenario 2: 
>> ifort -O0 -xHost -traceback -check bounds -check uninit -r8 -implicitnone -openmp -c main.f90 
>> ifort -O0 -xHost -traceback -check bounds -check uninit -r8 -implicitnone -openmp -o exec main.o 
>> ./exec

A too large of temporary

A too large of temporary variable may have been created. You may need to adjust the stack size for both main thread (usually Linker option) and OpenMP threads (either environment variable or library call before first parallel region).

On Linux the stack size is

On Linux the stack size is set with a shell command (ulimit -s or limit stacksize unlimited) - note that these don't actually remove a limit, but they set the size to the maximum defined in the kernel build. The environment variable OMP_STACKSIZE may also need to be defined with a higher value.

I see—that makes sense.
