I have upgraded to a rather recent GNUstep version on our Debian system but I still get gdnc core dumps. Any idea what this might be caused by and how this can be prevented?

Hmmm, this looks like you have either compiled GNUstep with -DDEBUG or you have set the environment variable CRASH_ON_ABORT. In both cases, the signal handler installed by gdnc will call the abort function. Unfortunately, the handler is installed for SIGABRT, too, which causes the infinite recursion you are seeing. Probably, the best fix is to not install the signal handler for SIGABRT. The following patch should fix that.
