gcore and core dumps...

haven't looked into this at all, but thought that I might report it
anyway and check if it is indeed the intended behavior.

If /servers/crash is not a core dumping crash server (i.e is either
--kill or --suspend), then doing `gcore PID' will do whatever the
crash server is currently.  That is, if the crash server is supposed
to kill the program, then `gcore PID' will cause the program to die.
I haven't checked if it will just suspend the processes if crash was
started with --suspend, but I wouldn't be surprised if it did.  A core
dump was not produced if crash --kill was used.

I find this behavior quite annoying, and counterintuitive.
