I would guess that the Fortran is trying to do some Fortran-style I/O;
that often causes problems. See Writing R Extensions for alternatives
(dblepr etc.). Or it might be some other bug.
The best way to debug something like this is with gdb or gdb plus a
front end like Insight, Xcode, Eclipse, etc., but if you haven't used
them before, they are somewhat daunting. If you're doing this on
Windows you'll need to rebuild your library with the environment
variable DEBUG set to T to get the debugging information compiled into
it. Not sure if you need to do anything on the other systems.
