OK, removed that part from the patch above.  It will get merged again only
with new FSF GDB HEAD anyway.

33:var StatArrInt: TStatArrInt;
44:    s: string;
80:  s := 'test'#0'string';

I believe In such case the DWARF data should not use DW_AT_allocated at all.

 <1><255>: Abbrev Number: 21 (DW_TAG_array_type)
    <256>   DW_AT_name        : AnsiString
    <261>   DW_AT_data_location: 2 byte block: 97 6     (DW_OP_push_object_address; DW_OP_deref)
    <264>   DW_AT_allocated   : 2 byte block: 97 6      (DW_OP_push_object_address; DW_OP_deref)
    <267>   DW_AT_type        : <0x437>
 <2><26b>: Abbrev Number: 22 (DW_TAG_subrange_type)
    <26c>   DW_AT_lower_bound : 1
    <26d>   DW_AT_upper_bound : 5 byte block: 97 6 38 1c 6      (DW_OP_push_object_address; DW_OP_deref; DW_OP_lit8; DW_OP_minus; DW_OP_deref)

In the case of Fortran the runtime crashes (on a NULL dereference) while
accessing non-allocated object.  But if the "allocation" is just an internal
compiler issue which should be hidden by the same compiler at the DWARF level.
Therefore I would guess to use some:
	drop DW_TAG_array_type -> DW_AT_allocated
	DW_TAG_subrange_type -> DW_AT_upper_bound:
		DW_OP_bra allocated
			DW_OP_skip end

$1 = {'dstr0', 'dstr1', 'dstr2', 'dstr3', 'dstr4', 'dstr5', 'dstr6', 'dstr7', 'dstr8', 'dstr9', 'dstr10', 'dstr11', 'dstr12'}
$2 = '?`???'#127#0#0'0a??'

OK... hopefully some new similar patch would work.
