I'm not so sure.  It may be a case of ensuring the carriage is at the left 
margin -- remember that Fortran carriage control would insert a line feed at 
the start of the record (if the record carriage control character is a space) 
but not a carriage return; that happens at end of record.  So if some previous 
operation left the carriage at some other spot on the page, you'd end up with 
weird looking output.  The / supplies <lf><cr> to ensure all is clean.
