I had a similar situation last month.  An element in a structure had
been assigned a value before the space for the element had been
allocated.  Of all the compilers the developer used, only gfortran and
g95 complained.

Run the program as Mark suggests to find out which line is causing the
segmentation fault.  If the line at causing the problem is similar to
the above situation, check that the space has been allocated.

If this is not the case, then post the lines of code.
