QUEST 1.3.0 and forrtl severe (173) error

If  you are running codes that uses QUEST 1.3.0 which are compiled with Intel XE, you may encounted the error

forrtl: severe (173): 
A pointer passed to DEALLOCATE points to an array that cannot be deallocated

Do note that QUEST used to work with Intel's ifort, but Intel has tightened their standard of memory allocation/deallocation hence the error you see. It is recommended you use gfrotran for the compilation
