I've compiled the HDF5 library with the most up to date (to this time) intel fortran.
With the --enable-production enabled, when doing the "make check", one of the tests will fail with a very bizarre behaviour.

I found the the subroutine nh5sselect_hyperslab_c is causing the SIGSEGV due to being executed "twice", despite it being called only one in the test code, and the second "call" do not have all the arguments, causing the problem.
In the HDF5 list others have reported the same problem with Intel 14, both on Linux and MacOSX.
If I disable production, than the tests start to fail when checking the C library (I'm also using icc 14).
A test made by kyle kanos (HDF list) with the intel 12.1 show no problems. My experience with the 11.1 version also is positive (no problems).
