bug#17895: 24.3.91; electric-indent-mode not quite right with comments i

emacs -Q
insert a multiline comment while editing a file with fortran-mode

expected behavior (= emacs 24.3): typing RET (bound to newline)
inserts a newline and puts point at column 0 of the new line

actual behavior: the new line is indented to column 6

A similar problem exists with multiline statements requiring
fortran-continuation-string in column 5.

I do not see the benefit of this new behavior in the context of
fortran-mode.  Maybe electric-indent-chars should be locally bound to
nil in fortran-mode.

PS: It seems to me that in fortran-mode the command
indent-for-tab-command bound to TAB is better suited to provide the
proper indentation *after* typing, say, fortran-comment-line-start
or fortran-continuation-string in column 0 of a new line.
