  Yes, this is a known problem with the DLL build of libgfortran, last
discussed on this list two days ago.  It's almost certainly to do with
buffered output and DLLs unloading at process shutdown, and the current
workaround is to use static linking.  I believe this is a problem from
upstream, where shared libraries are still not the default.  Getting java to
work at all (it currently builds an invalid DLL) is my first priority,
followed by gfortran stdio and libstdc function replacement.  Also, PTC!
