Has anybody been able to produce core files under mpich using the p4 device.  I have been able to verify on 2 different clusters
that SIGSEGV errors under mpich does not produce a core file.  Below are the error msgs, but not core files appeared.  I have not
tried kernel patches to produce named core files - but would first like to know whether this will solve things.

How does one produce these?
