Summary0005554: Crash reporter often not running?
DescriptionI have the feeling that the crash reporter is often not kicking in on 5.x. Or, unrealircd is just incredibly stable, that is possible as well :D :D
TagsNo tags attached.

Ah, duh:
Breakpoint 1, find_best_coredump () at crashreport.c:28
28 {
(gdb) n
33 DIR *fd = opendir(TMPDIR);
35 if (!fd)
38 *best_fname = '\0';
40 while ((dir = readdir(fd)))
42 char *fname = dir->d_name;
43 if (filename_has_suffix(fname, ".core"))

On many systems the coredump is just "core" (tmp/core), without the dot.

Means we are missing quite some crashes though

    Crash reporter: was missing many crashes due to search for core
    files that end in .core, while on many systems it is just 'core'
    without the dot. Reverted back to U4-style core file finding now.
    Thanks to DeviL for helping to trace this issue.
