Emacs core dump

From: Cyprian Adam Laskowski
Subject: Emacs core dump

I've been getting Emacs core dumps (as mentioned at gnu.emacs.help) on various
platforms recently.  I'm pretty sure it's due to something in my relatively
complex init elisp stuff.  But before I try my luck gdbing the core dump (I'm
not experienced with gdb (yet!)), I thought I'd post a commonality that I
noticed with just the verbatim core fil from a few different sessions (and as
far as I can tell, across all crashing sessions).

Any help would be very much appreciated, as I don't know what I'm doing in a
situation like this.

I've replaced regexps "address@hidden" with "^@" for legibility; otherwise this 
is verbatim
from core files near where it says "(core dumped)".

The cores have this in common: first, they were all accompanied by either a
"Segmentation Fault" or an "Abort"; secondly, about 1% into the core files, they
all seem to have the following:


----         ------   ------         ---         -------

Before the first line there, though, they differ. Here are the preceding couple
of lines for 4 of them (note that they all end with some "read error"):

(gnus-group-set-info '("alt.star
(gnus-group-set-info '("alalt.starprise" 3 nil))
(gnus-group-set-info '("alt.startrek.ente

string .= ', ' if $group_string;
     $group_string .= $
revision 1.1
keyword substitution: kv
total revisions: 1;     selected rte: 2001to set some configuration variables

If it helps, here is what my estate.el logged within 3 minutes of the
catastrophe last time, showing primarily which features were loaded. (I've added
newlines in the output in a few places in the display of `features' below to
circumvent gnus' "long line" complaint.)
