Hmmm... we've just had a thread about gnus+nnrss and I installed a fix that
seemed to help.  But your Emacs build seems to be brand new, so it looks
like the problem was not fixed after all.

I'm not familiar with this "autosave/core dump" prompt.  Could you give me
actual text for which I could grep in Emacs sources, or could someone else
point me to it?

If you set debug-on-quit (i.e. Options -> Enter debugger on Quit/C-g), do
you get a backtrace?  If so, please show it to us?
