If there isn't a backtrace in ~/Library/Logs/CrashReporter, I'd check  
the setting in /Developer/Applications/Utilities/ 
CrashReporterPrefs.app.  There also used to be some env var you could  
set that would cause cores to be dumped for anything spawned from  
that shell.  Maybe "corelimit" or some such thing.  The cores would  
go into /cores.

"man core" also points to a different setting in /etc/hostconfig and  
the setrlimit() call.  No shortage of knobs to try...

Sorry for the half-assed tip, but hopefully it is a useful starting  
point for someone who wants to get a backtrace.
