I'm a bit embarrassed to report that the problem has nothing to do with Python. 
  My DLL was built with dynamic library linking, and apparently there are some 
differences between the various Intel DLLs used on the two machines.  Following 
advice from the Intel Fortran forum, I created the DLL with static library 
linking, and now all works as expected.  Sorry to waste your time.
