BTW, how do I disable this feature ? If a program dies, I get "core"
in who-knows-what directory ... A core of Netscape should be around 4Meg,
and I only have 15Meg available ... :)
Is there a kernel compile option to disable core dumps ? I am not
that interested to do much debugging using cores, not to mention that my gdb
complains when I try to load a core file ...
