I found this to be rather interesting..  I didn't realize
that linux and solaris refused to core dump setuid programs.
This could be a rather good thing should it find it's way
into *bsd..

   Hmmm. Either my replies aren't getting through to bugtraq, or people are
just ignoring them. As of FreeBSD 2.1.6 and newer versions, we don't core
dump for setuid processes. It's been this way for nearly a year in -current,
but the change didn't get merged into the 2.1.x branch until after the
2.1.5 release...that was an oversight.
